About the Artists

The history and achievements of the Streeton Trio are impressive. Formed in 2008 in Geneva by three young Australian musicians, the trio was later selected to be a part of the prestigious European Chamber Music Academy. The trio has toured extensively and to much acclaim in Australia and overseas.  The trio’s CD performances have been rated highly by critics and the public. In 2017, the trio became Fine Music Ensemble in Residence. 

Trio members - Benjamin Kopp (piano), Emma Jardine (violin) and Meta Weiss ('cello) - are each outstanding musicians. They bring fresh interpretations and insights into the great works of the chamber music repertoire. Their performances are distinguished by subtlety, nuance and dramatic range

Programme Notes

Their concert featuring two of the greatest and best- loved works in the piano trio repertoire - Beethoven’s Archduke trio and Schubert’s piano trio no 2 - will bring the Sydney Mozart Society 2018 concert season to a thrilling close. These are works that have powerful grandeur, noble themes and rich drama, expressed with an emotional warmth and humanity that is truly uplifting.

Detailed programme notes will be available closer to the concert date.
