The highly promising cooperation between the departments of composition of European conservatories continues in 2019. Earlier, the project of the Budapest and Vienna music academies entitled Currents linked performers and composers from Prague via Helsinki to Zurich, while last year the distinguished Guildhall School of Music and Drama joined the inspiring initiative. The string trio was the topic of the most recent workshop and concert. Once again, triple formations lie at the centre of the autumn concert, the piano complemented with violin and cello, or flute and cello. The latest partner institution, Jāzeps Vītols Latvian Academy of Music, is sending Trio Espresso to Budapest, where they present a chamber work by Bohuslav Martinů and a new piece by young Hungarian composer Balázs Kecskés D., whereas the Hungarian trio are performing Ravel’s Piano Trio in A minor and a new creation by a Latvian student.
