Polish evening on Ohrid Summer Festival with trio Sypniewski

The 62nd Ohrid Summer Festival today continues with the traditional Polish evening wherein the trio Sypniewski are performing in the St Sophia church at 9 p.m.

This trio is consisted of Caroline Sypniewski – cello, Magdalena Sypniewski  – violi.n and Anna Sypniewski – violin.

The Trio Sypniewski was founded in 2016 and is consisted of three sisters born into a family of Polish origins and where music holds a central place. Caroline, Magdalena and Anna have played together since a very early age. The Trio studied with internationally renowned musicians as François Salque at the Conservatoire de Paris, the Quatuor Modigliani, the Diotima quartet, Krzysztof Chorzelski, and Günter Pichler thanks to the Proquartet masterclasses. They are selected to take part in the Académie Ravel of Saint-Jean de Luz, where they have received several awards. 

Since their first concert in the Chapelle des Jésuites in Carcassonne thay have had concert performances at major French festivals such as the Festival Debussy, Musiques à Versailles and many more.

Their objective is to popularize the string trio repertoire, such as the Mozart Divertimento and Beethoven trios, simultaneously giving attention to less known composers who wrote such music like Dohnanyi and Françaix. The young composer Raphaël Sévère dedicated his work Partita to them, which the trio recorded on a CD thanks to the collaboration with the Mirare Music.

In their strive to explore new repertoire they have shared stage with the pianists Alexandre Kantorow, Clément Lefebvre, Adam Laloum, and Jean-Philippe Fonsalas, as well as the violinists Alexandre Pascal and Hugues Borsarello.
