The art of sharing great music through the medium of the piano trio takes pride of place in the 2017 season with further insight into magnificent and important works by Beethoven, Haydn, Ravel and Dvořák. Youth and exuberance is celebrated with Saint-Saens, Mozart and Turina along with great storytellers, Elena Kats-Chernin and Fauré.
My guest artists and I are all looking forward to working together and sharing with you this great repertoire of truly imaginative, thrilling and nourishing music for the soul.
I am joined in 2017 by yet another splendid ensemble of artists with whom I have had the pleasure to work in past seasons. Violinists Natalie Chee, Daniel Dodds and Andrew Haveron are joined by brilliant young Australian virtuoso Grace Clifford who returns from the US for a special tour with cello favourite Clancy Newman. Old friends Julian Smiles, Umberto Clerici, Timo-Veikko Valve and violist Tobias Breider complete an outstanding group of performers whose brilliance and charisma always bring unique charm, wit and warmth to the stage.
