3MBS Marathon – Universal

3MBS Marathon 2024

Presented by 3MBS Melbourne 103.5FM


Universal showcases hope by McIntyre’s Phoenix, Sivanesan Trio, and Clarke’s Piano Trio.

Beginning in Australia and then France, travelling to ancient India, and landing in England in 1921, the range of music in Concert four shows that the power of music is indeed universal. Vibrant and imaginative Collide opens the evening with Robert McIntyre’s Phoenix, written specifically for the trio and reflecting a very personal journey of renewal from this young composer.

Hari Sivanesan Trio will open our ears and minds to the ravishing soundscape of a Classical Indian raga before we come back to our more familiar sound world of the piano trio. Trio Anima Mundi performs Rebecca Clarke’s unfairly neglected Piano Trio. An astonishing work, it traverses sorrow and despair before a bright and hopeful conclusion.
