Melbourne Chamber Players: Intimate Expressions

Intimate and moody, Shostakovich's powerful Piano Trio No. 1 begins an evening of music from prodigious imaginations. This youthful work reveals a vulnerable romantic, an innate melodist full of hope and passion. A gripping premiere follows by New York-based Australian composer Michael Grebla, whose music is captivating, introspective and above all, human. Arvo Pärt's stunning and serene retelling of Mozart's Adagio from Sonata in F Major, K. 280 suspends time before Robert Schumann's effervescent Piano Trio No. 2 uplifts in an elegant finale full of warmth and optimism.
