Trio Anima Mundi commences a world-first undertaking in The Reissiger Project – a mammoth survey of the 27 piano trios by Carl Gottlieb Reissiger – in 2020. This year TAM will present nine concerts throughout Victoria, as well as commence the first recordings for a multi-CD project to be published by UK label Toccata Classics.
Reissiger’s piano trios were highly praised during his lifetime. Robert Schumann said of the work; ‘jewel-like and never fatigues the ear but holds our attention to the very end’. Despite this, the substantial output of 27 trios are now all but forgotten. Trio Anima Mundi will continue its Piano Trio Archaeology by becoming the first ensemble internationally to survey this repertoire, thus giving voice to this composer and his sublime, yet now forgotten, music.
All donations will contribute to the commencement of this ambitious multi-year project. Funds will be put towards the concert presentations as well as the recording and publication internationally through Toccata Classics.
