Seraphim Trio

Seraphim Trio

Seraphim Trio is widely recognised as one of Australia’s most refined and experienced trios and is praised by critics for its ‘absolute sonic cohesion and uniform musical maturity’.  

In 2014, Anna Goldsworthy (piano) Helen Ayres (violin) and Timothy Nankervis (cello) celebrate 20 years together.  Read reviews, buy CDs, book tickets and view Seraphim's performance schedule on this website.

2018 Season

‘An unforgettable performance…It’s what art is supposed to be for but does not always achieve.’ - Limelight, 2017

Welcome to the home of Seraphim Trio!

In 2018, our beloved violinist Helen returns home from London, and we’ve devised a bumper year to celebrate, with a new commission by the exciting young Australian composer Jakub Jankowski; a concert tour with the brilliant concertmaster of the Sydney Symphony, Andrew Haveron; and a repeat visit by one of our favourite chamber music friends, violist Jacqui Cronin. 

The fascinating musical figure of Schumann binds together our series, as we move from the dark romantic imaginings of his first piano trio to the glorious conviviality of his piano quintet. We return to all of our favourite haunts, from the Melbourne Recital Centre, to the Sydney Independent Theatre, to the Art Gallery of Ballarat. And we’ll be back by popular demand at the Art Gallery of South Australia, for another weekend mini-fest: ‘Seraphim Plus.’ 

But first, we begin our year in festive form, as we begin our leisurely crawl through Australia’s summer music festivals. Catch us for Ravel in Adelaide or Beethoven in Brunswick, or anywhere in between! We’ll be appearing at the Adelaide French Festival (https://www.adelaidefestivalcentre.com.au/events/seraphim-trio-plays-ravel/), the Organs of the Ballarat Goldfields Festival (https://www.ballarat.com/organs)

the Mildura Summer Music Festival (http://www.artsmildura.com.au/Murray-River-International-Music-Festival/HOME.aspx), and the Brunswick Beethoven Festival (http://www.brunswickbeethovenfestival.org.au).

We hope to see you soon!

Helen, Anna and Tim
