Lofty Program Divinely Performed by the Olympus Trio

Regi Papa, Ben Capps, Konstantine Valianatos

Olympus Piano Trio – Friday, September 15, 2017 -  Three young men with Greek heritage, exceptional talent, and an extraordinary rapport in bringing music to life, the Olympus Piano Trio are violinist Regi Papa, cellist Ben Capps, and pianist Konstantine Valianatos.  The dynamic ensemble formed at Juilliard in 2010 to celebrate and explore their shared passion for chamber music; they perform a repertory of classical masterpieces as well as the music of native Greek and diaspora composers.  The trio had a retreat to prepare a new program for upcoming  concerts and competitions: Brahms Piano Trio No. 1 in  B Major, op. 8); Ravel Piano Trio in A Minor; and Greek-Canadian contemporary composer Christos Hatzis Odd World – which they tried out in the living room at Weatherwatch Farm.  We had a great turnout because folks remembered this trio’s superb concert last summer.  Here again several audience members pronounced it the best concert they have ever heard!  We feel that way about all of our concerts, but truly, there is indeed something extra-special about experiencing live music in such close proximity to the artists as a house concert offers.
