Grand Prize and Gold Medal Winners of the Prestigious Fischoff Chamber Music Competition, the Prima Trio distinguishes itself not only with its remarkable playing, but through the repertoire it performs.
Formed in 2004 while its members were studying at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music in Ohio, this group actually plays four instruments. Gulia Gurevich (born in Uzbekistan to a distinguished musical family) switches between violin and viola. Boris Allekhverdyan (B.M. from the Tchaikovsky Moscow Conservatory) plays clarinet and Anastasia Dedik (1st prize winner of the Lee Biennial Piano Competition and the Cliburn Institute/Piano Texas Concerto Competition) is concert pianist.
Prima Trio’s repertoire ranges from beloved chamber music standards to such exotic gems as Armenian composer Aram Khatchaturian's soulful “Trio for Violin, Clarinet and Piano” to S. I. Glick’s festive “The Klezmer’s Wedding.” “Serenade” by American composer Peter Schickele (aka P.D.Q. Bach) is the grand finale of every concert.
