ADELAIDE 2017: Weekend Feast at the Art Gallery of South Australia

  • Art Gallery of South Australia (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

A feast of music and food over a weekend tracing the history of the piano trio.

Over the weekend of 8 and 9 July 2017, three concerts will be held at the Radford Auditorium, Art Gallery of South Australia with a special three-course Coriole wine dinner on Saturday evening.

Following its recently acclaimed cycles of Beethoven and Schubert trios, in 2017 Seraphim Trio launches a celebration of the history of the piano trio journeying through time from the Viennese salon of Beethoven, to the rich subjectivities of Brahms, the vivid folk imaginings of Dvořák and the colour and majesty of Ravel.

MELBOURNE 2017:
The Moderns - The History of the Piano Trio

Dmitri Shostakovich Piano Trio No.2 in E minor, Op.67
Maurice Ravel Piano Trio in A minor, Op.67
Peter Sculthorpe From Irkanda III

Seraphim Trio explores the 20th-century piano trio with Peter Sculthorpe’s ‘From Irkanda 3’ and other music of the moderns, Ravel and Shostakovich. Ravel’s Trio remains, even today, a wondrous modern invention of sonority and texture while Shostakovich’s Trio, with its palpable expression of grief, remains painfully relevant in our century. Sculthorpe’s glittering ‘From Irkanda 3’ propels the genre to a bright and hopeful future.

MELBOURNE 2017:
The Nationalists - The History of the Piano Trio

Johannes Brahms Piano Trio in B, Op.8
Antonín Dvořák Piano Trio No.4 in E minor, Op.90 ‘Dumky’

Seraphim Trio continues its musical journey through time performing gems from the history of the piano trio. The Trio celebrates the nationalists with music by two great friends, Dvořák and Brahms. While Brahms remained loyal to German Classicism during a time of Romantic opulence, he recognized in his young Czech friend a kindred melodic inventiveness and gift for musical line. Brahms was also instrumental in the publication of Dvořák’s ‘Dumky’ Trio, one of the most beloved trios of this era.
