Ensemble Metamusika began its life at the Royal College of Music, where its founding members Dunja Lavrova and Konstantin Lapshin were awarded the highest prizes for their achievements upon their graduation as Masters of Music.
Ensemble Metamusika has now become something close to a "fellowship" of well-established musicians united by a passion for music, and a way of bringing their musical ideas to life in order to achieve something truly unique.
Notable performances for the ensemble have included playing to HRH Prince Charles, a broadcast on French national television, and an invitation to the highly-acclaimed International Festival of La Baule.
Most recently, in anticipation of the 140th anniversary of Sergey Rachmaninoff, the Ensemble has been joined by the cellist James Barralet to perform composer's works as a piano trio.
