A piano trio group established by three family members:
Anna Ouspenskaya, piano
Igor Zubkovsky, cello
Fedor Ouspensky, violin

FamTrio is a piano trio group established by three family members: Anna Ouspenskaya, piano, Igor Zubkovsky, cello, and Fedor Ouspensky, violin. The three musicians played together for many years for their own enjoyment and as a way to introduce Fedor to the wealth of piano trio music, before forming an official group.

As Fedor's own interests in music developed, so did the casual pastime turned into a professional performing trio, with its own unique focus on bridging tested classics with contemporary music written in the XX and XXI centuries for a variety of settings such as opera, film, game, ballet.

FamTrio performs programs comprised of a mix of established piano trio repertory and their own arrangements and covers and is especially known for creating themed programs such as The Rings, which presents arrangements for piano trio written by Igor and Fedor of Richard Wagner's Der Ring des Nibelungen and Howard Shore's score for The Lord of the Rings.


Anna's work is always full of passion and dedication. Her inspiration flows over into the Fam and Capital Piano Trio, thus achieving a dreamy and evocative, mesmerizing atmosphere that brings the listener in a new world.

We never get enough of Beethoven's Piano Trio work and the Fam Trio helps us to remember it with excellent interpretations.
