Muses Trio celebrates Clara Schumann ‘s 200th anniversary of birth and CD launch 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 a very 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).
