Muses Trio celebrates Clara Schumann’s 200th anniversary of birth with a performance of spoken word, diary extracts and her personal piano trio fragmented and reconstructed with music by female composers inspired by her legacy: pianist, virtuoso, composer, wife to an unstable genius, mother to eight.
Alongside Clara’s acclaimed trio, the Muses will perform Kate Moore (AUS): Whoever you are, come forth (solo cello) and Dies Irae (violin, piano), Rebecca Clarke (UK): Lullaby (violin and cello), Nicole Murphy (AUS) : Surface 2 (violin, cello, piano), Jennifer Higdon (USA): Nocturne from String Poetic (violin, piano), and Lera Auerbach (USA): Postlude from Tryptich, the Mirror with Three Faces (violin, cello, piano).
Muses Piano Trio are some of Australia’s leading and most exciting musicians in contemporary classical music, known for their edgy, spine tingling and virtuosic performance style: Christa Powell (violin), Louise King (cello) and Therese Milanovic (piano).
Muses Trio celebrate music composed by women, performed by women, and focus on bringing this relatively unknown, yet vastly deserving collection of works to the stage and enthralled audiences. Signatures of their carefully curated public performance events are guest speakers/ performers with an inspiring cause, and a focus on creating memorable experiences.
Discovering, inspiring, collaborating, commissioning, connecting and supporting creative women to pursue and share artistic excellence drives the passion and impetus of their artistic focus.
