"Paul Schoenfield’s jazz and honky-tonk splashed Café Music delivers a dizzying dose of 1920s and 1930s swing in its outer movements and the gentle amble of folk and spiritual traditions in its lyrical middle. The chomping finale saw Firebird crank up another notch, sweeping and sparkling through this unabashedly optimistic work with the sort of abandon only a supremely disciplined ensemble can get away with."

Words and music mingle in this final Firebird Trio concert for 2022. We perform the Spanish folk music of De Falla, a Schubertian setting of a Swedish folk melody, and two iconic movements from Gershwin's folk opera Porgy and Bess. Our pianist Benjamin Martin contributes a playful trio version of Ravel's Mother Goose Suite and to finish the year, Firebird Trio pays homage to its namesake with Stravinsky's ballet music - the Infernal Dance of King Katschei who is bewitched by the magical Firebird. This concert can be enjoyed in a Live Studio audience at the Athenaeum Theatre or online through the Australian Digital Concert Hall
