Selby & Friends – The Archduke

Selby & Friends

Presented by Selby & Friends


The Selby & Friends 2022 Season makes its new home at the Melbourne Recital Centre’s Primrose Potter Salon for five glorious and intimate concerts between March to October with a select ensembles of artists counted amongst the best in the world.

About the concert

Selby & Friends welcomes Natalie Chee after a two-year absence to join Julian Smiles and Artistic Director Kathryn Selby in this exciting program, starting with the highly romantic trio by the great Australian composer Miriam Hyde, whose grace and generosity are legendary.

The program includes the Arensky second trio, followed by one of Beethoven’s greatest piano trios, the Archduke.

This program is a stunning window into the sheer endless possibilities presented by the piano trio genre, its breadth and power, and its ability to transcend even the beauty of the voices of these three instruments.
