Skazki Trio

Friday 1st February 2013

The first instalment of the Live @ QA series took place on Tuesday 29 January with a fantastic performance by the Skazki Trio consisting of pianist, Maria Razumovskaya, cellist, Alisa Liubarskaya and violinist Joo Yeon Sir.

The Skazki Trio are postgraduate musicians from the Royal College of Music specialising in chamber music.

The trio held a string workshop prior to their performance, for the ensembles and soloists at Queen Anne’s. Each girl had the opportunity to perform in front of the trio, and the trio encouraged them by offering advice and tips on how to improve their performance.

The trio offered our quartet some great advice on how we can interact with each other when we’re playing, how to balance out the sound so that all members of the quartet can be heard equally, and they taught us some bow techniques too. We found the workshop really helpful, and we will definitely bring the advice they gave us into our performances in the future.

 The Skazki Trio treated the audience at Queen Anne’s to an evening of virtuosic playing which had tremendous depth and passion. The audience were spellbound as they were carried through the works by Rachmaninov, Shostakovich and Hersant. The Skazki Trio incorporated contemporary film clips to illustrate the Schostakovich Piano Trios in C minor and E minor which captured vividly the differences between peacetime and war in Leningrad when the composer was living there. With the recent Holocaust Commemoration the haunting sounds of the last movement of the E minor combined with the images of the struggles will be a lasting memory for all who attended.
