Music Network presents Amatis Piano Trio (Netherlands/Germany/UK)

Wed 10 Oct, St. Finian’s Church, Dublin 2, 8pm

Just weeks after forming in 2014, this exhilarating young piano trio won the audience prize at the Grachtenfestival-Concours in Amsterdam, quickly leading to their debut at the Royal Concertgebouw. Since then, they’ve taken the chamber music scene by storm, winning a slew of international prizes including the 2015 International Parkhouse Award in Wigmore Hall. For the 2018/2019 season, the trio has been selected as ‘Rising Stars’ by the European Concert Hall Organisation, which will see them perform in 23 prestigious concert venues across Europe.

The three players combine to create a gloriously balanced sound, the sensitivity of Dutch/Chinese pianist Mengjie Han a wonderful counterpoint to the exuberant energy of British cellist Samuel Shepherd and the delicate precision of German violinist Lea Hausmann. Known for playing intense and often highly charged programmes, with a repertoire spanning from Haydn to Shostakovich, the trio is equally committed to contemporary works, in 2015 founding the Dutch Piano Trio Composition Prize to encourage young composers to further the repertoire. On this tour they will premiere a new work by Irish composer Amanda Feery, commissioned by Music Network. Always lyrical, often surprising, catch this trio while you can!

Music Network presents Yury Revich, violin, and Benedict Kloeckner, cello (Russia/Germany)

Wed 7 Nov, St. Finian’s Church, Dublin 2, 8pm

We’re set for performances of great passion and intimacy as two highly gifted young soloists, Russian violinist Yury Revich and German cellist Benedict Kloeckner, share a stage for the first time in Ireland.

A true virtuoso – and an impassioned believer in making the violin “sing” – Yury Revich made his debut at Carnegie Hall in 2009 and since then has performed in many of the world’s most prestigious concert halls. Winner of multiple awards, including the Young Artist of the Year at the International Classical Music Awards in 2015, Revich is a dedicated chamber musician, collaborating with renowned artists such as Daniil Trifonov as well as founding Quatuor du Soleil.

One of Germany’s most acclaimed young cellists, Benedict Kloeckner has been lauded for his “glowing, ethereal tone” and “perfect intonation”. In addition to performing as a soloist in venues such as Berlin’s Philharmoniker, the Barbican Centre and Carnegie Hall, Kloeckner is a much sought-after chamber musician, collaborating with such luminaries as Sir András Schiff, Anne Sophie Mutter, Gidon Kremer and Christoph Eschenbach.

Music Network has commissioned Sebastian Adams to write new music for this tour.

Music Network presents Natalie Clein, cello, Julius Drake, piano and Claire Booth, soprano (UK)

Thurs 29 Nov, Royal College of Physicians, Dublin 2, 8pm

For our end of year concerts, this consummate trio have come together to curate an intriguing exploration of three wonderfully expressive instruments. It’s oft said that the cello is close to the human voice, and Clein’s cello quite literally “sings”, matched by the delicacy and lyricism of pianist Julius Drake and the soaring tones of soprano Claire Booth.

Renowned for an extraordinary breadth of repertoire, Booth’s operatic highlights include Elcia in Rossini’s Mose in Egitto, Elle in Poulenc's Voix Humaine and Rosina in The Barber of Seville. The trio have captivated audiences everywhere, winning plaudits for their dynamic energy and strong sense of narrative.

Clein is a sought-after chamber performer who has featured as a soloist with such orchestras as the Philharmonia, Hallé, City of Birmingham Symphony, and Montreal Symphony, while pianist Drake enjoys an international reputation as one of the finest instrumentalists in his field, appearing regularly at such venues as Carnegie Hall, the Concertgebouw and Wigmore Hall, London.
