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

 

Ursula Nelius - violin

Paul Stender - cello

Chris Cartner - piano

 

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.

 

Friday 1st August, 6-7pm, Christ Church Lavender Bay

Thursday 7th August, 7-8pm, Pitt Street Uniting Church (Sydney CBD)

Monday 25th August, 7-8pm, St Andrew's College Chapel, University of Sydney

 

Tickets $25 (concession $20)
