Event details

Over the last two decades, Helen Ayres, Anna Goldsworthy and Tim Nankervis have remained steadfastly committed to chamber music – from building the contemporary repertoire to developing new audiences and teaching the next generation of performers.

Inspiring others through intelligent programming and a deep knowledge and love of chamber music, Seraphim Trio never fails to delight audiences.

Three very different piano trios speak to the private versus public nature of chamber music. Clara Schumann’s Piano Trio is a consummate example, constructed with great intimacy and poetry, while Fanny Mendelssohn’s Piano Trio constitutes an enormous challenge to the genre; it’s a piano concerto masquerading as a piano trio, and reflects her thwarted ambitions to transcend the world of private music-making for a more public sphere. Seraphim Trio is delighted to perform 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.
