Named after the landmark museum in their native Russia and descending from the great Russian musical tradition, the Hermitage Piano Trio is a rarity in the chamber music world: a trio made up of three musicians who are noted soloists in their own right.

In a career already spanning forty countries on five continents, violinist Misha Keylin has been guest soloist with the St. Petersburg Philharmonic, Leipzig Chamber Orchestra, Budapest Philharmonic, Israel Sinfonietta, and the Philharmonic Orchestra of Chile, among others.

Cellist Sergey Antonov was hailed as “a brilliant cellist” by the legendary Mstislav Rostropovich. Antonov was one of the youngest cellists ever awarded the gold medal at the world’s premier musical Olympiad, the International Tchaikovsky Competition. He has performed on stages at world-renowned venues from Russia’s Great Hall at the Moscow Conservatory to Suntory hall in Tokyo.

A passionate interpreter of his native Russian repertoire, pianist Maxim Mogilevsky debuted at the age of thirteen with the Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra to rave reviews. Recent orchestra appearances include those with the New York Philharmonic, Cincinnati Symphony, Orchestre National de France, St. Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra, and the Rotterdam Philharmonic.

For their concert at the Clark, the Hermitage Piano Trio will perform the Haydn Piano Trio in F Major, Hob XV:2; the Arensky Trio No. 1 in D Minor, Opus 32; and the Tchaikovsky Trio in A Minor, Opus 50.

The galleries and museum shop will be open until 6:00 pm.

Tickets are $25 ($20 members and students). Purchase tickets online or by calling 413 458 0524.
