Join the Streeton Trio for their performance of The Classics in the popular Prelude in Tea series at North Sydney’s Independent Theatre.
Comprising violinist Emma Jardine, guest cellist Trish O’Brien and pianist Benjamin Kopp, the Streeton Trio will perform Beethoven’s much-loved Piano Trio in B flat major Op.97, “Archduke” and Schubert’s glorious Piano Trio in E flat major D.929.
The Streeton Trio was formed in 2008, in Geneva, Switzerland, by three young Australian musicians. In 2010, the trio was selected to be a part of the prestigious European Chamber Music Academy, where it was in residence for three years. Winner of the 2011 Music Viva Chamber Music Competition, the Streeton Trio has been laureate of several prestigious international competitions and in 2012, the trio was featured as Musica Viva’s Rising Stars ensemble. The trio has released four CDs, to international acclaim, which are frequently featured on ABC FM and the MBS Networks.
Named after the Australian Impressionist painter, Sir Arthur Streeton, the trio has performed in venues such as Wigmore Hall, Het Loo Royal Palace (Holland), Melbourne Recital Centre, Pablo Casals Festival (Prades) and Bangalow Festival. Recent performances include appearances across the United Kingdom, China, Australia, New Zealand, United Arab Emirates and Europe. Now based in Sydney, the trio is Fine Music Ensemble in Residence.
