“It will be fascinating,” say organisers
The International Piano Trio is performing at the Algarve Costume Museum (Museu do Traje) in São Brás de Alportel on June 11 at 5pm.
The trio will explore new music in a series of duo and trio performances. The concert programme is titled “Dances Throughout the World”.
“If you’ve never experienced a duo or trio piano concert before, it’s a fascinating experience,” say organisers.
The trio is comprised of pianists Doris Gameiro, Jose Cubela coming from Texas and Svetlana Bakushina, an Algarve-based artist.
Their first performance in Portugal was at Centro de Artes de Águeda in 2019. It was a “one piano – six hands” concert featuring works by Gershwin, Piazzolla, Rachmaninov and Sousa, and was organised by Sérgio Brito, an organist, choir director and piano teacher at Águeda Conservatory.
Doris Gameiro is a classically trained pianist who teaches privately (virtually and in person) in Fort Worth, Texas, in English, Spanish and Portuguese. She is passionate about playing piano collaboratively and is also a jewellery maker.
Jose Antonio Cubela is a versatile musician who has performed and recorded as a solo and chamber pianist. In addition to his performing activities, he has judged national and international piano festivals and competitions.
Svetlana Bakushina is a pianist, artist and filmmaker based in the Algarve. She runs her private piano studio in Portimão and produces independent films. Svetlana performs in styles from classical to fusion, collaborating with musicians from different countries.
With Covid putting a halt on international travel, the trio worked on individual projects and has been working diligently this past year, getting ready for this performance, presenting well known works by Debussy, Rachmaninov, Gluck, Manuel de Falla and brand-new works, including a never-before-released piece by Nicaraguan composer Luis Fletes-Soza and our very own Svetlana Bakushina.
