BIOGRAPHY

Founded in 2004, The Hermitage String Trio made its London début at St John’s, Smith Square in the autumn of that year, and soon established itself as among the finest ensembles of its type. Steeped in the renowned Russian tradition of string playing, the members of this European-based Russian trio possess a love of chamber music that shines through in their programmes, which offer an enticing combination of lesser-known pieces and masterworks of the string trio repertoire. Mature and accomplished artists, they have been inspired and enriched by performing with such great musicians as Yehudi Menuhin, Martha Argerich, Anne-Sophie Mutter and Gidon Kremer. They have given concerts at the Petworth, Newbury Spring and Dart festivals, at the Sage, Gateshead, and the Wigmore Hall, London, and, abroad, have given concerts in France, Germany and Australia, among others. In 2008, the distinguished violinist Boris Garlitsky joined the founder members Alexander Zemtsov, principal viola of the London Philharmonic Orchestra, and Leonid Gorokhov, who enjoys a flourishing career as a solo cellist. ‘True brilliance!’ noted The Strad of a recent performance by The Hermitage String Trio, adding: ‘This ensemble will do much to put more string trio repertoire on the musical map.’
