The NevaArte Piano Trio was founded in 2007 in St. Petersburg by three young graduates of Special Music School for talented children of the St. Petersburg Conservatory.

The three established musicians, Pavel Tovpich (Piano), Vladimir Pogoretsky (Violin), Evgeny Pilipchuk (Cello), who already in their first concert performances have shown themselves as an ensemble of an incredible homogeneity and technical perfection, within the next years have developed a flawless reputation and a special connection with demanding Russian audience.

In addition to performing in NevaArte trio, the three musicians form successfully their own career paths.

Pavel Tovpich (Piano) studied at St. Petersburg Conservatory, Klagenfurt Konservatory, University of Music and Arts in München and took part in masterclasses of A. Perl and V. Portnoj. He is a prize winner of many national and international competitions, has a versatile repertoire, performs widely solo and chamber music.

Vladimir Pogoretsky (Violin) was awarded various prizes and awards during his studies at the St. Petersburg Conservatory (Prof. Kazarina). He was a concertmaster of the Baltic Youth Philharmonic Orchestra 2008–2011 and a concertmaster of the Mikhailovsky Theater St. Petersburg in 2012–2018. Since 2011 he is a concertmaster of St. Petersburg Capella Orchestra. At a current time Vladimir is educating at the Bern University of the Arts (class of Prof. Bartek Niziol).

Evgeny Pilipchuk (Cello) studied with Prof. Nikitin at the St. Petersburg Conservatory. After winning prizes in numerous competitions as a soloist and as a member of various chamber music ensembles, Evgeny became a principal cello in the Orchestra of Mikhailovsy Theatre and a sought-after pedagogue in the St. Petersburg Conservatory.
