The Benaud Trio is one of Australia’s finest chamber ensembles.
Formed in Melbourne in early 2005, pianist Amir Farid, violinist Lachlan Bramble and cellist Ewen Bramble have established themselves as formidable performers of the standard repertoire, works by Australian composers and music with a pop/jazz influence.
Moscow, 1944. Already grief-stricken by the death of a close friend, crumbling under the weight of war and news of the unfolding holocaust, Shostakovich produced one of his most profound expressions. Bleak, triumphant, terse, harrowing then grotesquely macabre in less than 30 minutes, the work has meaning beyond the earthly tragedies of its inspiration. As a distant prelude, Debussy’s 1880 Piano Trio is the work of a fancy-free Parisian teenager. As yet untouched by the troubles of the world, his music sparkles with the freshest youthful innocence.
