Seraphim Trio – Gallic Charm

Seraphim Trio

Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre & Seraphim Trio


A performance of cherished works and Gallic beauty.

About the artists

Seraphim Trio is as much a lifelong friendship as a chamber ensemble. Acclaimed for its encyclopedic projects and inventive collaborations, their sonic cohesion and uniform musical mastery is a constant in all its performances.

About the concert

In this concert Seraphim Trio presents the beloved Ravel piano trio alongside a rarely heard trio of Ravel’s student and compatriot, Germaine Tailleferre. Taillferre began work on her trio in 1916 (just two years after Ravel composed his), but it was not until sixty years later that she completed it on a commission from the French Ministry of Culture. As the only female member of Les Six, Taillferre was vehemently original in style. Her trio, filled with Gallic beauty, will be one of this year’s uplifting discoveries.
