Trio Dali – standing ovations but no wildlife sightings
Trio Dali find themselves in Sydney today, where they will perform at City Recital Hall Angel Place tonight. The young trio has been in Australia for just over a week and has already performed in Hobart, where they were disappointed to see no Tasmanian devils, Newcastle, where Amandine was introduced to Stuart pianos at a lively post-concert event, and Coffs Harbour, where they received a rare standing ovation.
Vineta and Christian-Pierre came into Musica Viva’s Sydney office on Friday afternoon to meet the staff and enjoy a glass of wine. They joked that Amandine is the most serious member of the trio – whenever the string players have free time, Amandine is searching for a piano to practise on, and even on Friday night she went to the Theme and Variations showroom in Willoughby to give a masterclass. Vineta, on the other hand, looked forward to seeing the Sydney Symphony perform after drinks with staff, with Christian-Pierre undecided between also experiencing a concert at the Opera House or heading back to his hotel to rest.
The Trio is in Australia until early June, with performances in Melbourne, Canberra, Perth and Adelaide still to come
