Trio Eusebius consisting of violinist Eva Šulić, cellist Tonka Javorović, and pianist David Vuković will perform at the 71st Dubrovnik Summer Festival on Friday, 24 July at 9.30 pm in the Rector's Palace and perform works by 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 Dubravko Detoni piece They Call Me Tryor, a piece for piano, violin and cello, that he composed in Dubrovnik in 1996 at the initiative of the Orlando Trio, who premiered it in Zagreb the following year at the composer’s birthday concert. The piece was already performed at the Dubrovnik Summer Festival by the Zagreb Trio in 2012 and, in addition to the arrangement for piano, violin and cello, its arrangement for piano, flute and saxophone is also often performed. In 2019 the Trio achieved great results at the 16th Ferdo Livadić International Competition of Young Musicians (winning the Ferdo Livadić Award for Best Artistic Personality and the City of Samobor and Croatian Composers’ Society Award for Best Performance of a Work by a Croatian Composer for Dubravko Detoni’s composition They Call Me Tryor). 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.
