Chick Corea - Crystal Silence
Joaquín Rodrigo - Spain (Aranjuez)
The Trio Classic Plus was founded in 2011 by renowned musicians, winners of international competitions, all three from Russia : Sofia de Salis (flute) , Katja Avdeeva (piano) and Vladimir Virok - Stoletov (cello).
The initial project was to create an ensemble capable of presenting a program consisting not only of classical and contemporary music, but also including jazz. The musicians perform their own arrangements and transcripts of original pieces of musician-composers such as Duke Ellington, Chick Corea, Dizzy Gillespie and Oscar Peterson, using to the maximum the sound and technical capabilities of their instruments.
The trio Classic Plus has given concerts in Switzerland, China and Russia, which immediately captured the public’s attention and were a great success thanks to the originality of the program and the virtuosity of the performance.
