Trio Tresensus - synthesis of three instruments and feelings which brings the audience into the world of undiscovered sounds, moods and atmospheres. Since December 2015, three creative, young and talented musicians from Latvia - Līga Griķe (kokle), Aigars Raumanis (saxophone), Uģis Upenieks (percussions) - have united in a musical journey in search of new colors, thoughts and viewpoints.
The ensemble, consisting of students and graduates of Jāzeps Vītols Latvian Academy of Music, has participated in many festivals at their home country, promoting Latvian national instrument kokle with folk music background as a full-potential concert instrument, which can produce all the ideas of contemporary composers and more. Trio Tresensus has collaborated with several contemporary Latvian composers; more than ten pieces have been dedicated to this unique ensemble. Trio's repertoire also includes self-arranged pieces from folk songs and baroque masterpieces to minimalism and rhythmic music of 21st century, but the main goal of Trio Tresensus is to collaborate with peer composers to look for new possibilities and colors in music and to bring the works of the youngest Latvian composers to concert halls and festivals.
Kokle. Saxophone. Percussions. Three very different and powerful instruments that come together in a unique world of unheard music and sound.
