Trio Anima Mundi- Three’s Company
13 October 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm| Full: $45 Concession: $35 Three-Concert Subscription Full: $120 Concession: $90
International award-winning Trio Anima Mundi is one of Australia’s best-known chamber groups. Since their foundation in 2008. it has become renowned for its ‘Piano Trio Archaeology’ – the unearthing and performing forgotten works – and presenting these ‘findings’ alongside masterpieces of the piano trio genre and freshly-minted contemporary compositions.
Sometimes composers believe that larger-scale works can be successfully presented with smaller forces. Such is the case with the two works in Concert Three. Both the Symphony (reduced from full orchestra) and the Septet (originally for piano, trumpet, two violins, viola, cello, bass) were re-arranged by their composers for the piano trio medium to terrific effect. The Beethoven performance launches the TAM ‘Beethoven 2020’ project – performing all of Beethoven’s piano trios during his anniversary year over one weekend. Join us after for a chat and tea!
