Cellist Adrian Daurov - at the age of 15, made his debut as soloist with the St. Petersburg State Symphony Orchestra in his native city. Subsequently, he earned top honors at three international competitions - Bulgaria’s 1st International Music Competition “Coast of Hope” (First Prize, 1996); The Netherlands’ Peter De Grote International Music Competition (Grand Prix, 2002); New York City’s L.I.S.M.A. International Music Competition (First Prize, 2004). In 2004, he toured as soloist with the St. Petersburg Chamber Orchestra, performing in St. Petersburg, Moscow, Warsaw and throughout Germany, and was appointed to the dual position of principal cellist and soloist with the Bayreuth Youth Festival Orchestra, under the baton of Peter Gulke. 2008 heard him as a featured participant in a gala Carnegie Hall concert celebrating Russia’s Independence Day, a program that included the distinguished Russian singers Yelena Obratztsova and Vladimir Galouzine. In 2012, he formed his own ensemble - now the award-winning Voxare Quartet, with which he still tours. Mr. Daurov has also collaborated in chamber music programs with pianist Alexander Ghindin, violinist Mark Peskanov and flutist Eugenia Zukerman.

March 2019 NO CONCERT
The only date available for a concert at the Saugerties United Methodist Church in March conflicted with an already scheduled Ulster Chamber Music Series Concert. Rather than attempting to divide patrons of classical music by making them chose between different trios at different venues at the same date and time, Saugerties Pro Musica did not schedule a concert.

At Once - Yalin Chi & Steven Beck: Piano for Four Hands
