Beethoven by candlelight
The three renowned chamber musicians who make up the Firebird Trio - pianist/composer Benjamin Martin, violinist Curt Thompson and cellist Josephine Vains - are presenting a rare concert experience in the Hawthorn Arts Centre; an in-the-round staging of Beethoven's music, by candlelight. The mood light setting will intensify the dark sounds of Beethoven's iconic "Ghost" Piano Trio in D major and the fiery Piano Trio in C minor Op.1 No.3.
The music will be interspersed with readings of Beethoven's letters by Peter Burch OAM, providing deeper insights into Beethoven's humanity and passion. One performance only.
