Join Firebird Trio in 2014 for a unique concert-theatre experience, exploring music from Beethoven to Brahms, Vaughan Williams to Shostakovich, Arvo Pärt to Tüür over three concerts. 

In the 2014 series, set in the magnificent Melbourne Recital Centre, Firebird Trio introduces The Dilettante Hater, a most discerning and entertaining critic, who makes a habit of slightly unpredictable appearances at our concerts. He is witty, engaging, and occasionally provocative. He is known merely as 'Monsieur'.

THE DILETTANTE HATER'S EASTERN EUROPE

Wednesday March 12 @ 7pm
Melbourne Recital Centre - Salon

Rooted in progressive rock and minimalism, Erkki-Sven Tüür's 2002 work Fata Morgana has powerful allure, while Pärt's arrangement of Mozart's Adagio endures as a moving homage. Shostakovich's searing second piano trio is unsurpassed as an elegy for the victims of war, while Haydn's C major trio and Schubert's bewitching Notturno are rarely equalled for their power to enchant.
