Connecting the music of "classics" with newer or contemporary music is one of the important dramaturgical pillars of the Eternal Hope festival. Thanks to the now prestigious ensemble Trio Bohémo, which is reaping one success after another abroad, in the dramaturgy of the evening we have the opportunity to experience an uncompromising compositional style at the first hearing of the recognizable Ludwig van Beethoven, one of the main representatives of classicism. Next, we look into the hard times of the communist Soviet Union and the harsh life of one of the greatest composers of all time, Dmitri Shostakovich. Gideon Klein's tragic fate will be forgotten for a while with his seemingly carefree Lullaby in transcription for piano trio, which came from the Trio Bohémo initiative. A novelty for the festival will be the Piano Trio No. 2 by Benjamin Yusupov, one of the most played contemporary composers today, which bears the nickname "From Jewish Traditions". Trio Bohémo is a winner of the Parkhouse Award (UK), the International Johannes Brahms Competition (AU), the Stasys Vainiunas Chamber Music Competition and the 'Filippo Nicosia' Award.
