Musica Viva presents the Enigma Trio in its 2019 Coffee Concerts series.

More lithe and malleable than a full quartet, the combination of violin, viola and cello makes for a scintillating three-way musical conversation. This concert presents three members of leading Sydney ensemble the Enigma Quartet, making their trio debut for Musica Viva.

The three trios of Beethoven’s opus 9 were considered by the 28-year-old composer to be his best works thus far. Premiered in 1799 with the great Ignaz Schuppanzigh on violin, the energetic C minor Trio is the most beloved of the set. Ernst von Dohnányi’s 1904 Serenade brings the form into the 20th century. Through five satisfying movements the Hungarian composer packs in an array of melodies and moods, from Haydnesque ebullience to a delightfully mischievous scherzo.

The artists: Marianne Edwards Violin, Elizabeth Woolnough Viola, Rowena Macneish Cello

The program: BEETHOVEN String Trio in C minor, op 9 no 3, DOHNÁNYI Serenade, op 10
