Latvian chamber music ensemble NYX Trio was formed in 2011 by two members of the Latvian National Symphony Orchestra – violinist Tatjana Ostrovska and flutist Anete Toca. Since then, together with pianist Ieva Sarja, they have performed in various venues across Europe.
One of the artistic priorities of NYX Trio is to introduce new audiences to classical music by bringing a new approach to the classical concert format – such as textual introduction to performed music with emphasis on interesting facts from composer’s lives that audience members can relate to; mixing different genres of performing arts – music and theatre or poetry; performing in unusual venues such as parks and art galleries.
NYX Trio aim to popularise Latvian culture – from rich folklore traditions to music of contemporary composers.
Programme includes: Ibert: ‘Deux Interludes’; Gaubert: ‘Medailles Antiques’; Rota: Trio for flute, violin and piano
The Trio will perform the World Premiere of a new miniature by Latvian composer Aivars Kalejs
