The International Piano Trio is coming together again, this time at the Algarve Costume Museum (Museu do Traje de São Brás de Alportel) to explore new music being offered in a series of duo and trio performances called Dances Throughout the World.
On the 11th of June, 2022 at 5pm the curtain will rise and their magic shall begin. If you’ve never experienced a duo or trio piano concert before, it’s absolutely a fascinating experience.
The Trio is formed by pianists Doris Gameiro, Jose Cubela coming from Texas and Svetlana Bakushina being a local artist from Algarve. Their first performance was near the heart of Portugal, at the Centro de Artes de Águeda in 2019. One piano - six hands concert, featuring works by Gershwin, Piazzolla, Rachmaninov, and Sousa, was organized by Sergio Brito, an organist, choir director and piano teacher at the Agueda Conservatory.

With Covid putting a halt on international travel, the Trio worked on individual projects and has been diligently working along this past year getting ready for this performance, presenting well known works by Debussy, Rachmaninoff, Gluck, Manuel de Falla and brand new works, including a never debuted before piece by Nicaraguan composer Luis Fletes Soza and our very own Svetlana Bakushina.
This year the piano trio concert program “Dances Throughout the World” will take place on the 11th of June at 5pm in the Algarve Costume Museum (Museu do Traje de São Brás de Alportel).
