About

«The play of Brahms Trio is remarkable
for exquisiteness and subtlety
of each minor detail, precision of the general
idea and powerful personal energy of the performers...»

Rudolf Barshai


A winner of the 13th International Chamber Music Competition in Trapani (Italy, 1993) and the 1st International Joseph Joachim Chamber Music Competition in Weimar (Germany, 1996), the Brahms Trio is Russia's only chamber ensemble to have performed at Grand hall of Brucknerhaus in Austria and the Cemal Reşit Rey Grand hall in Istanbul. The Brahms Trio has been performing with invariable success at the Grand hall of Moscow Conservatory, the Grand hall of Warsaw Philharmony, Lisinsky Grand Concert hall in Zagreb, Seoul Art Centre and other venues of Moscow, St.Petersburg, Brussels, Vienna, Rome, Paris, Melbourne, Hong Kong etc.

Graduates from the Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatory and Gnessins' Russian Academy of Music, members of the Brahms Trio have become followers of the traditions of Russian performing school and high ideas of music education.

The Brahms Trio has performed with outstanding musicians such as Galina Pisarenko, Hibla Gerzmava, Karmen Balthrop, Yana Ivanilova, Charles Neidich, Julian Milkis, etc. Brahms Trio’ discography includes works by Beethoven, Schubert, Brahms, Tchaikovsky, Pabst, Arensky, Glinka, Rachmaninov, Shostakovich, Schnittke, Knipper, Bloch, and Piazzolla.

In 1999 under the auspices of the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation, Moscow State Academic Philharmonic Society and Goethe-Institute the Brahms Trio started creation of the anthology of Russian Piano Trio. Putting forward for themselves a task of bringing back to life forgotten pages of music history and giving new interpretation to national cultural legacy from the point of view of contemporary performing esthetics, the musicians are determined to record and issue CD series of all piano Trios composed in Russia in XIX-XX Centuries.

The Brahms Trio owes a great debt of professional gratitude to the professors of Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatory Tatyana Gaidamovich and Alexander Bonduriansky. The ensemble debuted in January 1991. In 1995 the Trio became a staff Ensemble of Moscow State Philharmonic Society. In 1998 and 2006 the Brahms Trio was awarded grants of the President of Russia.
