Trio performs Suite Modale

Sirius have been busy of late rehearsing for several concerts this month. A few weeks ago the Trio recorded the first movement of Suite Modale by Tony Wheeler. Thanks to our friend and colleague Garran Hutchison-Menzer for inviting us to record at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music. We have a little taster video to share, and the Trio will be performing all three movements at Lane Cove Music later this month.  The Sarabande and Trio movement is based on the Classical minuet and trio form, however in this case the minuet is replaced by the sarabande dance. While all movements of the Suite are based on traditional forms, the harmonic material is inspired by the use of modes. Each movement exploits the ability of each three wind instruments, but the first movement in particular, prominently displays the lyrical quality of the bassoon. Music by Tony Wheeler is published by Wirripang.
