Description

Muses Trio celebrates Clara Schumann 's 200th anniversary of birth and CD launch with a performance of spoken word, diary extracts and her personal piano trio fragmented and reconstructed with music by female composers inspired by her legacy: pianist, virtuoso, composer, wife to a very unstable genius, mother to eight.

This is a unique opportunity to hear a performance in Wolston House, a nineteenth-century residential farmhouse and part of the National Trust of Australia, constructed during Clara Schumann's lifetime. Although on the other side of the world, Wolston House gives a taste of the domestic setting with which Clara and her famly lived; coicindentally Wolston House has been home to two families with a large number of children. By choosing this setting, we aim also to give a sense of the struggle between the artistic and domestic life Clara Schumann constantly juggled throughout her life.

The program is as follows: Wolston House opens at 10am. Guests may choose to join a complimentary guided tour from 10:15-10:45, or to explore the grounds and farmhouse themselves. The Muses perform from approximately 11:00-12:15. Guests can choose to stay, mingle with the artists and friends, and enjoy the Catering by Boheme Events payable via cash or EFTPOS on the day. From 10am you can purchase Scones with Chia Jam and Cream, Homemade slices and freshly brewed tea and coffee. After the concert you can choose from Savoury tart / quiche and salad or Charred chicken with pumpkin and pinenut pasta salad in hamper style boxes, Cheese, fruit and quince paste and crackers in antipasto boxes, and have a glass of Beer, wine and sparkling, Aperol spritz or Pimms cocktail. Please note no BYO food or alcohol. If you would like a vegan or gluten-free option, please notify therese.milanovic@gmail.com when booking.

Alongside Clara's acclaimed trio, the Muses will perform Kate Moore (AUS): Whoever you are, come forth (solo cello) and Dies Irae (violin, piano), Rebecca Clarke (UK): Lullaby (violin and cello), Nicole Murphy (AUS) : Surface 2 (violin, cello, piano), Jennifer Higdon (USA): Nocturne from String Poetic (violin, piano), and Lera Auerbach (USA): Postlude from Tryptich, the Mirror with Three Faces (violin, cello, piano).
