Gordon KERRY Piano Trio no 2 Im Winde
RAVEL Piano Trio
When is a trio not just a trio? When it is this one, comprising three stellar soloists. In their Southern Hemisphere debut, the matchless combined talents of Nicola Benedetti, Leonard Elschenbroich and Alexei Grynyuk will light up the stage. This is chamber music made by an A-team of young guns; and played with love, because they insist on making room for its presence in their busy solo schedules.
Given who they are, this ensemble's program is more than just trios. Instead, it offers a diversity of forms, and a chance to better appreciate each performer, in works for accompanied violin and cello. However, their joy in playing in threes shines through in this arresting end to the Musica Viva season with two of the great masterworks of the trio repertoire by Brahms and Ravel.
