The Seraphim Trio: Number Ones

The piano trio may have been a late comer to chamber music repertoire, but Mozart’s Trio in G major is thrilling as his first serious chamber work in which both violin and cello have roles independent from the keyboard. Mozart’s classical style is echoed in Schumann’s late foray into the genre, composed as a present for his wife Clara’s 28th birthday.

Lovingly and meticulously prepared, it unfolds with a grandiosity unequaled in his subsequent trios.

Between these two firsts, Seraphim is delighted to give the world premiere of Jakob Jankowski’s Piano Trio No.1, generously commissioned by Graham Abbott.


  • Mozart Piano Trio No. 2 in G major, KV 496
  • Jankowski Piano Trio No. 1
  • Schumann Piano Trio No. 1 in D minor, Op. 63

Over the last two decades, Helen Ayres, Anna Goldsworthy and Tim Nankervis have remained steadfastly committed to chamber music.

Winners of the Piano Trio Prize and the Audience Choice Award at the Australian National Chamber Music Competition in 2001, Seraphim Trio has regularly performed at the Melbourne International Arts Festival, the Port Fairy Spring Music Festival, the Adelaide Festival of Arts, the Peninsular Summer Music Festival and in 2013, Opera Australia’s Ring Festival in Melbourne.

Alongside its acclaimed subscription series Seraphim Trio is frequently broadcast on ABC Classic FM and on the MBS network, and maintains a robust commissioning program.

Seraphim frequently collaborates with Australia’s leading musicians: most recently with Diana Doherty, Paul Dean, Lisa Harper-Brown and David Elton.

The group has studied in Germany with Hatto Beyerle, and in Australia with William Hennessy, Eleonora Sivan, Mark Mogilevski, Ronald Farren-Price and Lois Simpson.”
