The Reservoir Trio is delighted to announce another date for this extremely popular programme: Monday 25th August, 7-8pm,
St Andrew's College Chapel, University of Sydney
The Reservoir Trio:
The Earth and the Supernatural
L. van Beethoven - Piano Trio no.5
in D major "The Ghost", op.70 no.1
E. Kats-Chernin - The Spirit
and the Maiden
C. Saint-Saens - Danse Macabre
The Reservoir Trio returns with a programme which explores music inspired by both our earth and the world of the supernatural.
Beethoven's D major trio has acquired the nickname "Ghost" based on its "strangely scored and undeniably eerie-sounding slow movement". Its outer movements are, however, completely typical of Beethoven's 'middle period', and consist of music which is earthly and absolutely human.
Sydney-based composer Elena Kats-Chernin chose the piano trio configuration for her piece which tells the legend of "The Spirit and the Maiden", and the Danse Macabre by Saint-Saens depicts the gruesome scene in which, at midnight, the skeletons of the dead rise from their graves and dance to Death's demonic tune.

Thursday 7th August, 7-8pm, Pitt Street Uniting Church (Sydney CBD)
Monday 25th August, 7-8pm, St Andrew's College Chapel, University of Sydney
