We are very excited to welcome the Marsyas Trio (flautist Helen Vidovich, cellist Val Welbanks and pianist Olga Stezhko) to Polyphony Arts’ performers! The London-based trio was formed in 2009 by graduates of the Royal Academy of Music, and is the UK’s leading flute, cello and piano ensemble. Showcasing a hugely diverse repertoire from the Classical and Romantic eras to the present day, the Marsyas Trio’s programming illuminates forgotten masterpieces, whilst inspiring a generation of new works.
Audiences around the world have been captivated by compelling narratives within programmes, whose themes varied from historical women composers and Suffrage to the reimagining of the history of humankind in the cross-art project Shadows of Time. The Marsyas Trio’s CD A Triple Portrait (Meridian Records 2015), featured chamber works by the formerly blacklisted Russian émigré Elena Firsova, in celebration of her 25 years in the UK, and their latest CD In the Theatre of Air (NMC Recordings 2018), debuted at No. 7 on the classical charts.
It’s wonderful to have you with us!
