March 2023 will bring the sonorous delights of a string trio, comprised of superb musicians to audiences
around Ireland. Led by Grammy-nominated violist Maxim and performing together for the very first time, the trio also features magnificent violinist Nikita Boriso-Glebsky and on of the rising stars of the classical music world, cellist Dóra Kokas. The programme will showcase the elegance and exuberance of Mozart’s only string trio, Beethoven’s glorious Trio in G major and a thought-provoking work by Bulgarian composer Dobrinka Tabakova which aims to highlight the extraordinary unity of sound created by a string trio.

As a violist, he is principally known as a frequent guest of the international music scene. In parallel with playing viola, Maxim enjoys a thriving career as a conductor, often combining conduction and directing as a soloist in the same concert.
