Trio Eusebius, consisting of violinist Eva Sulic, cellist Tonka Javorovic and pianist David Vukovic will perform as part of the 71st Dubrovnik Summer Festival on Friday, July 24th at 9.30 pm in the atrium of the Rector's Palace and bring works of Dubravko Detoni, Dmitri Shostakovich and Maurice Ravel.
The first festival performance of this young piano trio, which was founded in 2017 at the Music Academy in Zagreb, brings the musical work of Dubravko Detoni They call me Tryor. The composition was made in Dubrovnik in 1996 at the instigation of the Orlando Trio, which premiered it in Zagreb, a year later, at the composer's birthday concert. The composition was already in the program of the Dubrovnik Summer Festival in 2012 when it was performed by the Zagreb trio, and in addition to the composition for piano, violin and cello, it can often be heard in the composition for piano, flute and saxophone.
It is interesting that the Trio Eusebius in 2019 at the 16th International Competition of Young Music Artists Ferdo Livadic won the Ferdo Livadic Award for best artistic personality and the award of the City of Samobor and the Croatian Society of Composers for the best performance of Croatian composer Dubravka Detoni. The concert repertoire then includes the Trio for Violin, Cello and Piano by Dmitry Shostakovich, a composition that is considered one of the most significant works of chamber music of the 20th century. The four-part Piano Trio in A minor by French composer Maurice Ravel is the only piano trio written by this composer, and the Eusebius Trio dedicates the second part of its festival concert to it.
Tickets for the concert are available through the festival website www.dubrovnik-festival.hr or the service www.ulaznice.hr and at the box office in the Festival Palace (Od Sigurate 1).
The Dubrovnik Summer Festival has adjusted its business to the recommendations of the Croatian Institute of Public Health for the prevention of COVID-19 disease, and the audience is asked to adhere to them.
