Music Network presents Amatis Piano Trio (Netherlands/Germany/UK)
Wed 10 Oct, St. Finian‚Äôs Church, Dublin 2,¬†8pm
Just weeks after forming in 2014, this exhilarating young piano trio won the audience prize at the Grachtenfestival-Concours in Amsterdam, quickly leading to their debut at the Royal Concertgebouw. Since then, they‚Äôve taken the chamber music scene by storm, winning a slew of international prizes including the 2015 International Parkhouse Award in Wigmore Hall. For the 2018/2019 season, the trio has been selected as ‚ÄėRising Stars‚Äô by the European Concert Hall Organisation, which will see them perform in 23 prestigious concert venues across Europe.
The three players combine to create a gloriously balanced sound, the sensitivity of Dutch/Chinese pianist Mengjie Han a wonderful counterpoint to the exuberant energy of British cellist Samuel Shepherd and the delicate precision of German violinist Lea Hausmann. Known for playing intense and often highly charged programmes, with a repertoire spanning from Haydn to Shostakovich, the trio is equally committed to contemporary works, in 2015 founding the Dutch Piano Trio Composition Prize to encourage young composers to further the repertoire. On this¬†tour¬†they will premiere a new work by Irish composer Amanda Feery, commissioned by Music Network. Always lyrical, often surprising, catch this trio while you can!

Music Network presents Yury Revich, violin, and Benedict Kloeckner, cello (Russia/Germany)
Wed 7 Nov, St. Finian‚Äôs Church, Dublin 2,¬†8pm
We‚Äôre set for performances of great passion and intimacy as two highly gifted young soloists, Russian violinist Yury Revich and German cellist Benedict Kloeckner, share a stage for the first time in Ireland.¬†
A true virtuoso ‚Äď and an impassioned believer in making the violin ‚Äúsing‚ÄĚ ‚Äď Yury Revich made his debut at Carnegie Hall in 2009 and since then has performed in many of the world‚Äôs most prestigious concert halls. Winner of multiple awards, including the Young Artist of the Year at the International Classical Music Awards in 2015, Revich is a dedicated chamber musician, collaborating with renowned artists such as Daniil Trifonov as well as founding Quatuor du Soleil.¬†
One of Germany‚Äôs most acclaimed young cellists, Benedict Kloeckner has been lauded for his ‚Äúglowing, ethereal tone‚ÄĚ and ‚Äúperfect intonation‚ÄĚ. In addition to performing as a soloist in venues such as Berlin‚Äôs Philharmoniker, the Barbican Centre¬†and¬†Carnegie Hall, Kloeckner is a much sought-after chamber musician, collaborating with such luminaries as Sir Andr√°s Schiff, Anne Sophie Mutter, Gidon Kremer and Christoph Eschenbach.
