Xylem TRIO was established in year 2006 when the three internationally recognized musicians Oskars Petrauskis, Raimonds Petrauskis and Rihards Zalupe came together. Each of them confirmed themselves as soloist and serious chamber musician. The main idea of the Trio is to combine together piano, saxophone and marimba/ percussion. It is not an ordinary ensemble and there is not so much repertoire written for that kind of instrumental composition. Xylem TRIO performs very wide spectrum of music as original work’s modern arrangements from classics (J.S. Bach, G.F. Handel etc.) to folk songs, jazz and contemporary movie music, where the arrangers are the musicians themselves, putting together world, jazz and academic music elements. Xylem TRIO also plays contemporary composers original music specially written for them. Xylem Trio plays very active in throughout the Latvia including all biggest concert halls and collaborates with concert organization Latvijas Koncerti, National Radio and Television. Also the Trio has played in Three Star Order presentation ceremony and in foreign countries as well. The first recorded album Christmas Letter (made together with composer Raimnods Tigulis) received Latvian Music Records Award 2009 in the category Best instrumental, film or theatre album of the year. On 2010 Xylem TRIO recorded album “In The Mood Of Giya Kancheli” which received Latvian Music Records Award 2010 in the category Best instrumental, film or theatre album and Best Debut.
