"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."

UPCOMING CONCERTS in 2022
Wednesday March 30 @ 6.00pm
Melbourne Recital Centre, Salon.
Opening with the spirited Scherzo from Brahms' F-A-E Sonata, Firebird Trio presents a sublimely entangled program of chamber music from the musical partnership of Robert and Clara Schumann with Johannes Brahms. Firebird Trio welcome Guest Pianist Berta Brozgul, a laureate of Salzburg's Mozarteum and the Melbourne International Chamber Music Competition. The program also includes Robert Schumann's Adagio and Allegro for cello and piano, Clara Schumann's Three Romances for violin and piano, and finishes with Robert Schumann's Piano Trio in F major, a work of idyllic generosity and collegiality.
