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 Babajanian's trio.

The Salieri Connection

Poems of Passion


Concert 3 brings the 2021 series to a close by bringing together unlikely programmatic bedfellows - drawing upon the two early piano trios of Russians Rachmaninoff and Shostakovich alongside Reissiger's 2nd Piano Trio. The concert also includes the world premiere of Kenji's second piano trio, a City of Melbourne commission.
