Sergei Mikhailovich Slonimsky (born in 1932) is truly considered to be one of the most distinguished composers in the Russian modern music. His works embrace actually all the genres — from operas and symphonies to cinema sound-tracks.
The Trio for violin, cello and piano was created in 2000, being devoted to the memory of the Petersburgian composer Boris Klyusner (1909–1975). The first performance dates November 20, 2000. That was Sergei Slonimsky's author' s concert. Alexandra Savina (violin), Ekaterina Travkina (cello), Olga Radvilovich (piano) interpreted it there.
