The music of Johannes Brahms, JS Bach and Antonio Vivaldi, will share the stage with themes from such classic movies as The Godfather, Dr Zhivago and Fiddler on the Roof, during a melodious performance at the Dunamaise this month from two violinist brothers.

Vladimir Jablokov, with his brother Anton and pianist Adam Kuruc, presents ‘Two Brothers’ at the arts centre next Tuesday, October 14, at 8pm, performing an all new popular movie/musical and classical programme.

Vladimir has established himself as one of the best young musical talents currently playing in Ireland. His Classical Twist band showcases a small but dynamic band of Slovak and Irish musicians (two violins, viola, piano, bass and drums) taking familiar pieces from the world of both the classics and rock-pop, and reworking them in into new, vibrant, exciting shapes.

He started playing the violin aged five, making his stage debut at the tender age of ten. Coming from four generations of professional music makers, with a Russian maestro for a father and five musical siblings around him at home, Vladimir is steeped in the classical tradition.
