Xylem Trio (Latvija)

Xylem TRIO was established in 2006 when three internationally recognized musicians Oskars Petrauskis, Raimonds Petrauskis and Rihards Zalupe came together. Each of them has proven themself as soloist and serious chamber musicians. The main idea of the Trio is to combine piano, saxophone and marimba/percussion. It is not an ordinary ensemble and there is not much repertoire written for this kind of instrumental composition. Though Xylem TRIO performs very wide spectrum of music as modern arrangements of original works from classics (J.S. Bach, G.F. Handel etc.) to folk songs, jazz and contemporary movie music, where the arrangers are the musicians themselves, putting together world, jazz and academic music elements. Xylem TRIO also plays original music original music contemporar y specially written for them.
