Xylem TRIO was established in 2006 when three internationally recognized musicians Oskars Petrauskis, Raimonds Petrauskis and Rihards Zaļupe came together. Each of them has proven themselves as soloist and serious chamber musicians. The main idea of the Trio is to combine piano, saxophone and marimba/percussion. It is not an ordinary ensemble and there is not much repertoire written for this kind of instrumental composition. Though Xylem TRIO performs very wide spectrum of music as modern arrangements of original works from classics (J.S. Bach, G.F. Handel etc.) to folk songs, jazz and contemporary movie music, where the arrangers are the musicians themselves, putting together world, jazz and academic music elements.

Xylem TRIO also plays original contemporary music specially written for them. Xylem TRIO plays very actively all around Latvia, including all biggest concert halls and collaborates with concert organization Latvijas Koncerti, National Radio and Television. The Trio has also played in Three Star Order presentation ceremony as well as given concerts abroad.


Xylem TRIO has recorded their first album "In The Mood Of Giya Kancheli". This album received the Latvian Music Records Award 2010 in the categories Best instrumental, film or theatre album and Best Debut.
