TRIO OPUS ONE
Trio Opus One was founded in 2022 in the framework of the Franz Liszt Academy of Music. They began their work under the guidance of Liszt Ferenc Prize-winning pianist Gábor Csalog, where it was soon evident that they were on the same wavelenght both professionally and personally. They enjoy working with rarely performed pieces, and contemporary music is an integral part of all three of their lives. Their innovative musical ideas are enriched by collaborative arts, such as improvisational theatre. Their continuously expanding repertoire already spans music history from classical to the 20th century. In 2023, they were accepted into the Talentum Hungaricum programme under the mentorship of János Balázs. The trio consists of Maryia TREPASHKA (violin), Cseperke DONÁCZI (cello) and Olivér KEPES (piano).
Maryia Trepashka began her violin studies in her hometown of Minsk. Later she gained admission to the Franz Liszt Academy of Music Budapest in the class of Márta Ábrahám and Barnabás Kelemen.
She has played solo with the Belarusian State Philharmonic and the Franz Liszt Chamber Orchestra. He was invited to play with the Utopia Orchestra by Teodor Currentzis and was awarded scholarships by Musica Mundi and Bank of China.
Cseperke Donáczi began her cello studies in Pécs, then enrolled at the Béla Bartók Conservatory in Budapest with Krisztina Kardosné Kemény. She was accepted to Bard College in New York State and the Franz Liszt Academy of Music. She continued her studies in the class of Csaba Onczay. She has also assisted in several orchestras, such as the Franz Liszt Chamber Orchestra, National Philharmonic Orchestra, Budapest Sound Collective and the Alba Regia Symphony Orchestra of Székesfehérvár.
Olivér Kepes started his piano studies in Hatvan. After he moved to Budapest he continued his studies at the Leó Weiner Secondary School of Music with Professor András Héra.
