Crystal Trio - Program

Solo Concerts and with Symphony Orchestra

With a range of seven octaves, all styles of music can be played on the glass harp, glass flute, and verophone. The sound of glass creates sighing, windy and elusive sounds, and for audiences - this is breathtaking.

Crystal Trio has two different programs to offer audiences.

The first one is with the trio playing the glass instruments and includes an MC

who will add interesting anecdotes about the history of glass, repertoire, etc. Here is a typical program:

The program includes classical works adapted for glass instruments (Adagio in C major - Mozart), as well as works written specifically for glass (Tchaikovsky's Seasons).

 

Vitaliy Bezrodnov, emcee for Crystal Trio for the U.S. tours, adds an excellent presentation to the concerts with his wit, humor, and stories. He lends descriptions to the magic of glass music, giving the audience a chance to travel through time and space with the shivering sounds of crystal glass.

For school performances he includes curriculum connections to music, science, history, geography, and math, as well as entertaining and educating the students.
