1. Chamber Concert 2021: Astor Trio

Kölnischer Kunstverein, Hahnenstraße 6, 50667 Köln

Piazzolla & Saint-Saëns

This concert could not take place because of the corona lockdown. The Astor Trio recorded three fantastic video productions on March 27th in the Riphahn Hall without audience. These live videos were produced together with our media partner KSG Exaudio and are available to you free of charge on our website. Experience the Astor Trio live digitally with the famous "Introduction et Rondo Capriccioso" by Camille Saint-Saëns, the "Buenos Aires Fantasie I" by Tobias Kassung and "Nightclub 1960" by Astor Piazzolla.

The three musicians of the Astor Trio succeeded in the rare feat of establishing a completely new and unusual chamber music line-up in classical music and thus delighting audiences and critics alike. Violin, guitar and double bass meet in the Astor Trio. Alexander Prushinskiy, violinist and first concertmaster of the Dortmund Philharmonic, has come together with guitarist Tobias Kassung and the solo bassist of the WDR symphony orchestra Stanislav Anischenko for this rare combination.
