Trio Dali reviewed in The Australian

Trio Dali impresses on debut
Murray Black, The Australian
May 22, 2012

On its debut Musica Viva tour, the youthful Trio Dali closed its concert with an outstanding performance of one of Schubert’s late masterpieces: the second piano trio.

Sustaining excellent tempo and dynamic control, well-integrated ensemble sound and tight-knit blend, the group achieved the right interpretative combination of strength, poise and vulnerability which marks Schubert’s late works.

The concert’s first half comprised Ravel’s piano trio and Im Winde by Musica Viva’s featured composer Gordon Kerry.

Although speeds were fast in the Ravel trio, the group’s controlled approach ensured it was thoughtfully paced in order to sustain textural clarity and timbral refinement.

By contrast, Kerry’s Im Winde is a hard-edged, almost forbidding work. Trio Dali brilliantly essayed its challenging twists and turns and effortlessly realised its rapidly changing contrasts in mood and dynamics.
