2020 TAM Subscription Series - The Reissiger Project
The 2020 Trio Anima Mundi 3-concert Subscription Series - The Reissiger Project - will be presented in three locations: Melbourne, Geelong, and Montsalvat. Information and dates for the series are below.
Please note that Concert 1 has been postponed due to the current COVID-19 situation in Australia.
Why Reissiger? Reissiger was a highly-esteemed figure during his time, but now is all but forgotten. His enormous output for piano trio is seldom performed despite the quality of the music - Robert Schumann described this beautiful music as ‘...jewel-like...his music never fatigues the ear, but holds our attention to the very end.’
Concert 1 juxtaposes two compositions which are constructed around the same tonal centre of F-sharp minor. The romantic melodies of Reissiger's Fourth Trio and the elegance of Boughton's Celtic Prelude are contrasted superbly by the dramatic language of Babajanian's trio.

The Salieri Connection
