HERMITAGE STRING TRIO
Boris Garlitsky, violin
Alexander Zemtsov, viola
Leonid Gorokhov, cello
In the short time since its foundation in 2004, the Hermitage String Trio has established itself as an outstanding ensemble. This European-based Russian trio is steeped in the great Russian tradition of string playing. Their love of chamber music shines through in their programmes which offer an enticing combination of lesser-known pieces and masterworks of the string trio repertoire.
The Hermitage String Trio made its London début at St John’s Smith Square in Academia Rossica’s Series Russian Virtuosi. They have given concerts throughout the United Kingdom and have appeared at the Petworth, Newbury Spring and Dart Festivals and at the Wigmore Hall; further afield, they have played at the Australian Festival of Chamber Music in Townsville and have given concerts in Germany and in France. They have recorded for Chandos and for Naxos.
