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’.

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.
