In 2015 Firebird Trio presents its 5th Concert Series at the Melbourne Recital Centre – Horizons.

A stunning collection of repertoire from all corners of the globe, designed to delight and provoke. Firebird Trio welcomes old friends and new, with the intrepid clarinet of Paul Dean, and Guest Violinists, Australia’s distinguished William Hennessy and American virtuoso, Dr. Curt Thompson.


Wednesday November 4 @ 7pm

With Paul Dean (Clarinet) and Curt Thompson (Violin)

Sebastian Currier - Verge for clarinet, violin and piano
Paul Schoenfield - Café Music
Benjamin Martin – Ragtime for piano trio (2015)
Leonard Bernstein – Piano Trio (1937)

To wrap up the year Firebird explores the modern American scene with works by two Juilliard School composers Sebastian Currier and resident pianist/composer Benjamin Martin.  Schoenfield's infectious Café Music is infused with jazz and folk roots,  and sits playfully alongside Leonard Bernstein's rhythmic Piano Trio. Firebird welcomes to the program the brilliance of clarinetist Paul Dean, and the virtuosity of Guest Violin, Dr. Curt Thompson.
