‘…absolute sonic cohesion and uniform musical maturity…a masterclass in chamber music technique and ensemble.’
– The Australian
Over the past two decades, the Seraphim Trio have established themselves as one of Australia’s most enduring chamber ensembles. All three of its members – Helen Ayres (violin), Timothy Nankervis (cello) and Anna Goldsworthy (piano) – studied at the Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM) and are now committed to passing down their knowledge for the benefit of future generations.
They play Haydn’s Gypsy Trio, before being joined by recent ANAM alumnus Martin Alexander (viola) in Mozart’s Piano Quartet in G minor, K.478 and Dvořák’s Piano Quartet in E flat major, Op.87.
The ANAM Artists program is supported by John T Reid Charitable Trusts and the Bowness Family Foundation.
