"Classical violin: a sweet lullaby... that's what you think, right?"

When three internationally acclaimed violinists, Avanesyan, Lorenzo Gatto & Yossif Ivanov, gather round a drink to discuss the meaning of their lives, they decide to boost the often misinterpreted world of violin with a new wave.

Playing thrilling & virtuosic arrangements, Trilogy is a melodic aggression used against unfair cliches smeared over the face of classical music. With their bow in hand, they slash through the boundaries between all genres of music close to their hearts -from classical masterworks to grooving pop tunes and film soundtracks.

Their first video clip, named "Pulp Fiction",went viral over the internet (over 500,000 views within a couple of days on YouTube) and created a social media buzz, leading to various concert engagements.

Acclaimed as “a player of impressive authority and presence”(The Strad) and “one of the top violinists of tomorrow”(Diapason), Yossif Ivanov has quickly established himself as one of the most exciting violinists of his generation. As a top prize winner at the Montreal International Competition and the Queen Elisabeth Competition, Yossif has performed with orchestras such as Montreal Symphony, London Philharmonic, Singapore Symphony, Rotterdam Philharmonic, Konzerthausorchester Berlin.

On the side Yossifhas an almost unhealthy obsession with cinema, which (luckily) he tries to incorporate in to his activities as a Trilogy member.


“An impressively impassioned soloist, with energy and sheer gusto” (ClassicsToday.com).

Since his successes in international competitions (the Queen Elisabeth Competition and the Manchester International Violin Competition amongst other), Lorenzo Gattohas been invited to perform all over the world, from New York to Tokyo with prestigious orchestras such as the BBC Philharmonic, the Rotterdam Philharmonic, The Moscow Virtuosi and The Malaysian Philharmonic. Lorenzo sustains a constant habit of not keeping his feet on the ground, may it be under a paraglider or behind the wheel of his airplane!


"Avanesyan is one of the most inspiring artists of his generation" (Frankfurter Allgemeine, 20 October 2011). Avanesyanreceived an international recognition as a soloist after winning the first prizes at the Yehudi Menuhin and prestigious Carl Nielsen competitions. During the last years he has made acclaimed debuts, among others, with the Copenhagen philharmonic, Tokyo symphony, London chamber, Sinfonia Varsovia and Belgian National orchestras.

Hrachya’sother passions go out to modern science as well as dance ( being a big MJ fan, he’s training very hard to be selected for the next X-Factor contest.)
