 “I’m still pinching myself that they’re coming to Drogheda” said the organiser of the Drogheda Classical Music Series Pauline Ashwood about the world class artistes she has booked for the final concert of the Spring series featuring works by Shostakovich, Schubert and Ukrainian composer Silvestrov.

On Saturday 14 May at 7:30pm cellist Johannes Moser makes a welcome return to Drogheda, joined by his trio partners Vadim Gluzman (violin) and Andrei Korobeinikov (piano) for a genuinely starry line up.

Performing Shostakovich’s two contrasting piano trios along with Schubert’s mammoth first piano trio, the trio have added Ukrainian composer Silvestrov’s Piano Trio Mozart-Augenblicke.

The concert takes place in St Peter’s Church of Ireland, Drogheda. Tickets are €20 and can be booked through Droichead Arts Centre on 041 9833946 or with further information available from

Universally recognized among today’s top performing artists, Ukrainian-born, Israeli violinist Vadim Gluzman is acclaimed for his appearances with the world’s great orchestras and conductors. Accolades for Gluzman’s striking catalogue of recordings for the BIS label include the Diapason d’Or of the Year, Gramophone’s Editor’s Choice, Classica magazine’s Choc de Classica award, and Disc of the Month by The Strad, BBC Music Magazine, and Classic FM. Distinguished Artist in Residence at The Peabody Conservatory, Gluzman performs on the extraordinary 1690 ‘ex-Leopold Auer’ Stradivari, on loan through the Stradivari Society of Chicago.

Johannes Moser

German-Canadian cellist Johannes Moser (above) has performed with the world’s leading orchestras and works regularly with conductors of the highest level. His recordings have gained him the prestigious Preis der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik and the Diapason d’Or. In August 2019 his latest release featured the works of Felix and Fanny Mendelssohn with Alasdair Beatson, Piano. Johannes is renowned for his efforts to expand the reach of the classical genre to all audiences, and his passionate involvement in commissioning new works for his instrument. Johannes Moser plays on an Andrea Guarneri Cello from 1694 from a private collection.

Andreï Korobeinikov was awarded the First Prize of the Scriabin International Piano Competition in 2004. Since his first recital at the age of 8, Andreï Korobeinikov has performed on some of the greatest international stages as soloist with orchestras and in chamber music. His recordings received multiple awards (Diapason d’Or, Choc Classica…). His most recent recording with Johannes Moser of Rachmaninov and Prokofiev’s Works for Cello and Piano on Pentatone Records also received a Diapason d’Or. Born in 1986 in Russia, Andreï Korobeinikov had his first piano lessons at the age of 5 and entered the Moscow Conservatory in 2001. He later attended the Royal College of Music in London.

The Series is funded by the Arts Council and Louth County Council and run in partnership with Droichead Arts Centre with sponsorship from WhiteLight Events and RTÉ Supporting the Arts.

*Yevgeny Sudbin is forced to withdraw from the May leg of the trio tour with his friends Vadim Gluzman and Johannes Moser, due to recent changes in the schedule beyond the control of all three artists as a consequence of the pandemic. These recent changes make it impossible to find common time for the necessary preparation of these concerts. We’re grateful that Andreï Korobeinikov will replace him.
