Event Details

In Strelitzia's first program for 2017, we begin by honouring upcoming International Women's Day on March 8th with the first half of our program featuring two of the foremost female composers of their generation. Jennifer Higdon is one of the United States' most acclaimed contemporary composers. Her Piano Trio is in two contrasting movements, 'Pale Yellow' and 'Fiery Red', and in them she seeks to embody the moods of the two opposing colours. Elena Kats-Chernin, one of Australia's most eminent composers, has featured frequently on Strelitzia's programs over the years. In her 2009 work 'Variations on Trauerwalzer', she looks to an early work of Schubert's for inspiration, providing an interesting contrast with the final work on our program. We conclude with one of the most substantial works in the repertoire. Schubert himself uses the full palette of colour and emotion in his iconic Piano Trio in E Flat, one of the final works he heard performed before his death in 1828.

Featured non-Australian music: Jennifer Higdon, Schubert
