is a dynamic ensemble quickly establishing itself as a leader in its genre. Praised for its innovation and enthusiasm, Trio Agora was the 1st prize winner of the 2018 Rubinstein chamber music competition in Düsseldorf, Germany. The trio regularly commissions new works and performs self-made transcriptions, in addition to bringing the standard repertoire to stages around Europe.
The ensemble seeks interaction with its audience, reviving the dialogue, creativity, and interpersonal connection at the origin of chamber music.
Its first CD, "Youth," was released in 2017. This recording focused on early works of Beethoven, Rachmaninoff, Mendelssohn, and Debussy. A second CD, “Sounds of Lithuania,” is currently being recorded, with sponsorship by the AGATA Foundation and an anonymous donor.
Dedicated to pedagogy, the Trio was Ensemble in Residence at the National Students’ Academy (NMA) in Nida, Lithuania in 2018 and will return in 2020, working closely with Mirga Gražynitė-Tyla, Algirdas Biveinis, and Gabrielė Biveiniene.
The ensemble performs regularly in Lithuania, Germany, Italy, Holland, Belgium, Hungary, and Russia in music series such as Amici della Musica Firenze and Le Strade D’Europa, performing halls such as the Kaunas Philharmonic hall and the Budapest Music Center. Season highlights include performances at Auditorium del Parco (L’Aquila, Italy), the Auditorium der Haniel Akademie (Duisburg, Germany), and at the Queen Elisabeth Music Chapelle (Waterloo, Belgium).
Based in Berlin, Trio Agora is currently studying at the Hanns Eisler conservatory with Eberhard Feltz and Martin Spangenberg. Previous mentors include Heime Müller and Sabine Meyer.
