The Seraphim Trio
A Prelude in Tea Concert
The piano trio may have been a late comer to chamber music repertoire, but Mozart's Trio in G major is thrilling as his first serious chamber work in which both violin and cello have roles independent from the keyboard. Mozart's classical style is echoed in Schumann's late foray into the genre, composed as a present for his wife Clara's 28th birthday. Lovingly and meticulously prepared, it unfolds with a grandiosity unequaled in his subsequent trios. Between these two firsts, Seraphim is delighted to give the world premiere of Jakob Jankowski's Piano Trio No.1, generously commissioned by Graham Abbott.
