The Seraphim Trio | In My Lady’s Chamber

27 September 2020 @ 2:30 pm - 5:00 pm AEST

$17 – $49

Part of Independent Theatre A Prelude in Tea Series | Cake from 2:30, Concert at 3:30.

Three very different piano trios speak to the private/public nature of chamber music. Clara Schumann’s piano trio is a consummate example of ‘chamber music,’ constructed with great intimacy and poetry, while Fanny Mendelssohn’s piano trio constitutes an enormous challenge to the genre. This is a piano concerto masquerading as a piano trio, and perhaps reflects the composer’s thwarted ambitions to transcend the world of private music-making for a more public sphere. Seraphim Trio is delighted to present the Australian premiere of Australian composer Elizabeth Younan’s Piano Trio. Composed as a single movement, it explores musical texture, constructing an organic structure from fragmented musical cells and mosaics. combined with more complex revisions made later in life.
