Trio Palladio

TRIO PALLADIO are three established Latvian soloists, avid chamber musicians and acclaimed recording artists Eva Bindere, Kristīna Blaumane and Reinis Zariņš. Each of them is the laureate of the Grand Music Award of Latvia, and in 2019 they were nominated for this prestigious award as a trio. Recent highlights include their artistic residency in the Concert Hall Cēsis, debut recitals at the London Wigmore Hall and Lutosławski Concert Studio in Warsaw, and performances of Beethoven’s Triple concerto with the Latvian National Symphony orchestra.

The trio’s interpretations have been broadcast live on the BBC Radio 3, as well as the Polish Radio and the Latvian Radio 3 Klasika. Trio Palladio creates conceptual programmes with rich variety of classical, romantic and contemporary chamber music, with particular focus on works by Latvian and Baltic composers.

Trio Palladio was named after Andrea Palladio (1508–1580) – one of the most influential architects of all time. The Renaissance genius drew inspiration from legendary Roman architect Vitruvius’ concept that architecture has a crucial connection with the arts and sciences whose fundament rests on numbers and proportions. As a trio, Eva, Kristīna and Reinis strive to embody in sounds the values expressed by Palladio and by Goethe, who intimately linked architecture and music.

 

Eva BINDERE was Concertmaster of the Kremerata Baltica chamber orchestra for fifteen years, as well as a regular duo and chamber music partner of Gidon Kremer (also on the Grammy-winning album After Mozart), performing at such venues as Carnegie Hall, Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Suntory Hall Tokyo, Salzburg Mozarteum, Musikverein Wien, Royal Albert Hall, and many more. Eva has a special affinity for chamber music and has collaborated with many artists including Yo-Yo Ma, Pierre Amoyal, Renaud and Gautier Capucon, Hagen Quartet, Mario Brunello, Thomas Demenga, Leif Ove Andsnes, and Martin Helmchen. Teaching is an important part of Eva’s life; she is Professor at the Jāzeps Vītols Latvian Academy of Music in Rīga and the Accademia Perosi in Biella, Italy. Eva gives regular masterclasses, and collaborates with a variety of orchestras and educational projects. She has also given Latvian premieres of the Magnus Lindberg and Kurt Weill violin concertos, as well as lesser known Latvian music.
