The Seraphim Trio
Schumann Quintet with Andrew Haveron
A Prelude in Tea Concert
Sydney Symphony Concertmaster Andrew Haveron joins Seraphim Trio and violist Jacqueline Cronin to perform Schumann's masterpiece, the Quintet in E flat major. By pairing the keyboard as an equal partner with the established string quartet, Schumann invents an electrifying new genre capable of bringing chamber music out of the private salon and into the public concert hall. To be equally treasured is Korngold's gorgeous Suite Op. 23 for two violins, cello and keyboard. The suite was commissioned by left-handed pianist Paul Wittgenstein and reveals Korngold's Late Viennese heritage, combining a rich lyricism with modern rhythmic vitality.
