Prima Trio visits Seattle

A fun part of my job is getting out and listening to classical music, and it’s especially gratifying to watch performers (and audiences) whose excitement is visible. Sunday night, the Russian Chamber Music Foundation of Seattle hosted the Prima Trio in a short evening of homages, including Varelas’ “Hommage a Piazzola” and Khachaturian’s folk-flavored Trio for Clarinet, Violin and Piano, full of Uzbek flourishes. Especially fun to watch was pianist Anastasia Dedik, who showed great intensity as well as some wide smiles while playing. She and her trio-mates, Gulia Gurevich and Boris Allakhverdyan, seemed genuinely touched when a bouquet of tulips was presented to all on stage, and they beamed at the chance to play encores. The audience was small — likely because the concert was on the same day as a Seattle Symphony performance and the NW Flower & Garden Show — but Gurevich thanked our little group profusely.
