A unique combination for a trio in Cyprus, the Triptycho Ensemble consists of guitar, viola and flute, and will perform at Technopolis 20 on Saturday.
The trio was formed in 2019 by three professional musicians – Greek Cypriot Vasilios Avraam, the guitarist; Turkish Cypriot Sinem Sadrazam, playing the viola and France’s Virginie Bove on the flute. They aim to present to the Cypriot public a special and rare repertoire, works originally written for flute-viola-guitar that were never played before.
The programme will include the Grand Trio Concertant op.30 by Francesco Molino from Classical period, the Trio op. 84 by Joseph Franz Moser from the Romantic period and the Color Pastel by Máximo Diego Pujol from 20th century.
All three musicians have a long musical career and have performed around Europe. Bove, once the Principal Flutist of Paris Sorbonne Symphony Orchestra, is now the Sub-Principal Flute player in the Cyprus Symphony Orchestra.
Sadrazam has also played with numerous orchestras yet since 2013 she has been living in Cyprus where she is teaching viola at the Near East University and is a member of the Presidential Symphony Orchestra.
Among the many things Avraam has done during his career was being a guitar teacher at several music schools in Hungary where he was also the artistic director of the classical guitar festival in the Northeastern Region of Hungary. Currently, he is a guitar teacher at state music school in Nicosia.
