Benaud Trio

Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre & Benaud Trio


The Benaud Trio is one of Australia’s finest and most-loved chamber ensembles.

About Benaud Trio

Since coming together more than 15 years ago, pianist Amir Farid and the Bramble brothers (Lachlan on violin and Ewen on cello) have established themselves as formidable performers of the major repertoire, works by Australian composers and are well-known for their outrageous pop-inspired encores.

About this concert

Benaud Trio crosses over to the ‘wrong’ side of the tracks, performing works that distort boundaries, transform the classics and put today’s talent in the spotlight. When Vivaldi is just not enough, Piazzolla ups the ante with his fiery and sensuous take on The Four Seasons. Acclaimed Australian composer Mark Isaacs does a classical-jazz crossover like no other in his new version of Closer, written especially for the Benauds. And some ‘chamber chill’ is provided by Adelaide-based composer Luke Altmann in Holy Fools.
