1. Chamber Concert 2022: Astor Trio

Kölnischer Kunstverein, Hahnenstraße 6, 50667 Köln Information Tickets

Open concert 2022

This concert with the Astor Trio was already planned as the opening concert in 2021, but had to be cancelled due to the lockdown. Now we are looking forward to a grandiose start to the new concert year 2022 with the Astor Trio and their highly virtuoso programme with Bach, Piazzolla & Saint-Saëns.

The three musicians of the Astor Trio have succeeded in the rare feat of establishing a completely new and unusual chamber music instrumentation in classical music, thereby delighting audiences and critics alike. The Astor Trio brings together violin, guitar and double bass. Alexander Prushinskiy, violinist and first concertmaster of the Dortmund Philharmonic Orchestra, has joined forces with the guitarist Tobias Kassung and the solo bassist of the WDR Symphony Orchestra Stanislav Anischenko to form this rare combination.
