Beethoven String Trio op 19 no 2
Dohnanyi String Serenade
Anthony Ritchie Easter Melancholy

Three Christchurch Symphony Orchestra string players will celebrate a year of personal artistic achievement with a special concert consisting of established repertoire, a new composition, CD release and an exhibition of NZ oil paintings.

Continuing to grow and develop the rich beautiful musical landscape of chamber music in Christchurch is the dream of violinist, Cathy Irons and cellist Tomas Hurnik. Despite the ups and downs over the last year, they have continued to perform and even to record their first CD.

They will combine with violist, Vyvyan Yendoll to form their group, Tres Cordes – literally, “three strings.” The afternoon concert consists of three works – trios by Beethoven, Dohnanyi and a special commission from Anthony Ritchie – Easter Melancholy.

“Music is for us a rich and beautiful artform. We wanted to celebrate this by inviting Anthony to write something lyrical and uplifting for us.”

In their CD, “String Trio Sapphires,” they aimed for a very clear, well-blended, pure, classical sound. They asked a local oil painter Nathanael Provis if they could use one of his stunning landscapes, “the Monarchs of Fiordland” on the cover of the CD. Nathanael has been invited to exhibit some of his artworks at the concert in the foyer entrance.

It will be a trio of events at a trio concert!
