Seraphim Trio + Moore: Dean & Pejačević
26 May @ 18:00 - 19:00$40 – $50
This performance in Primrose Potter Salon will see the Seraphim Trio collaborate with violist Christopher Moore to present Imaginary Ballet, the breathtaking new composition by Brett Dean.
Inspired by Brett’s lockdown listening, Imaginary Ballet is a suite of fast, dance-like movements which carry rhythmic drive and bullish, effervescent energy. A series of slower interludes endows the work with oases of silhouettes and shadows, at the centre of which is an elegy to Brett’s dear friend and former viola teacher, John Curro.
Paired with a rarely heard piano quartet by one of Croatia’s most important 20th century composers, Dora Pejačević. Written in late Romantic style, the quartet is a blend of warm, lyrical melody and spirited dance. Mozart’s Piano Quartet in G minor remains a cornerstone of the repertoire and is the first major piece composed for the genre.
