Dvorak Piano Quintet & Liszt's 'Gretchen'

Firebird Trio returns to MDCH with two epic Romantic works for an exhilarating evening of music making. Hear the love poem ‘Gretchen’ from Franz Liszt’s Faust Symphony lovingly transcribed for the trio by pianist/composer Benjamin Martin.

Firebird welcomes violinist Oksana Thompson and violist Wenhong Luo in the magnificent Piano Quintet in A major of Antonin Dvořák – a masterpiece brimming with Bohemian passion, folk tunes and spirit.

Enjoy this concert online or be part of a live studio audience at Melbourne’s Athenaeum 2 upstairs.

"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."
