TRIO ANIMA MUNDI
2020 CONCERT SERIES
THE REISSIGER PROJECT
Trio Anima Mundi presents their thirteenth subscription series - The Reissiger Project - in 2020. Trio Anima Mundi continues its 'Piano Trio Archaeology' mission of presenting rarely-heard works from the piano trio repertoire, with a focus on the piano trios by Carl Gottlieb Reissiger, continuing their survey of his 27 piano trios.
Concert 1 - Relative Harmonies
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 Armenian composer Babajanian.
Sunday 22nd March at 2pm - Geelong

Sunday 29th March at 2pm - Melbourne
Carl Gottleib Reissiger - Trio for piano, violin, and cello, No.4 Op.56
Rutland Boughton - Celtic Prelude
Arno Babajanian - Trio in F-sharp minor
Concert 2 - The Salieri Connection
Concert 2 presents the work of two composers whose careers were linked by a common figure - Antonio Salieri. Both Reissiger and Beethoven spent time under the tutelage of Salieri, a formidable figure in the Viennese music scene of the time.
