“Otri” Trio is one of the chamber ensembles of the State Youth Orchestra of Armenia. It was founded in 2016. The Trio is comprised of the musicians-laureates of numerous national and international competitions: Ruzanna Tovmasyan (flute), Anzhela Hovhannisyan (violin), Arevik Kosyan (viola).
Unlike classical piano trios this ensemble consists of flute, violin and viola. Trio's special and breathtaking sound is resulted by the combination of two different types of instruments - woodwind and strings. The name of the ensemble has Latin origin, meaning alternative, second. Thus, the “Otri” Trio suggests an alternative version of the classical Trio.
The concert-presentation of the “Otri” Trio was held on July 13, 2016 at the Cafesjian Center for the Arts. The audience was presented pieces by Ludwig van Beethoven, Max Reger, Nino Rota, as weel as Komitas Miniatures specially arranged for the Trio staff by Anzhela Hovhannisyan.
The ensemble has recently presented series of concert-lectures at Yervand Kochar Museum and in several musical schools of Yerevan. The project is aimed at presenting the young audience not only the classical music but also the invaluable investment of Armenian composing school in the world musical treasury.
