Opening this concert with one of Australia’s most iconic piano trios, we are immediately conscious of the colours, light, sounds, and the mystical relationship Edwards has with the sea and earth of this great land. One of Spain’s great composers follows with a highly expressive, Neo-Romantic and refined work that embodies the composer’s Spanish roots with dance and salon music, hints of the gypsy and the Moor and its many folkloric elements. The beauty and power of Dvořák’s style exemplifies his fervent nationalist stance in the face of pressure from the prevalent German tradition, bringing to a close this powerful program whose flavours are brought vividly to life by three of Australia’s most iconic performers.
