A piano trio - 3 soloists with a comon vision to approach classic pieces of the worldwide musical literature in a fresh and energetic way - with Dimitra Triantafyllou on the violin, Petros Bouras on the piano and Marina Kolovou on the cello form the Galan Trio.

Haladjian, V. Kennedy, T. Bramel, H. Weiss and more, dedicated to Galan Trio. In an attempt to express the substance of these pieces through their personal perspective and subsidiary the musicians are using different forms of art such as video-art, lighting and dancing.
