Firebird Trio - like its mythical counterpart which shone magically through the darkness - sheds light on music from all epochs. Founded in 2010, Firebird Trio has performed nationwide to critical acclaim, with a vibrancy of imagination that echoes its name. Described by The Australian as "an ensemble of immense energy and focus" and praised in The Age for their “togetherness, charisma and playfulness”, Firebird Trio has performed around Australia including for Musica Viva, Noosa LongWeekend Festival, Coffs Harbour Music Society, Camberwell Music Society, Macedon Music, Melbourne Recital Centre, 3MBS Marathon and ABC Sunday Live. Their performances are regularly heard on ABC Classic FM and 3MBS FM.
A rigourous commissioning program and commitment to the Australian musical voice has brought to public attention many new works from the likes of Paul Grabowsky, Tony Gould, Julian Yu, Don Kay, Andrian Pertout and resident pianist/composer Benjamin Martin.
As passionate chamber musicians the members of Firebird Trio have enjoyed educating the next generation of chamber musicians for Australian Youth Orchestra, Melbourne Conservatorium of Music at the University of Melbourne, VCA Secondary School and Monash University.
Firebird Trio continues to present a unique and thought-provoking concert experience. Thinking outside the box, Firebird Trio performances reflect the energy, colour and splendour of the Firebird, taking their name from Stravinsky’s iconic ballet suite.
