Dutch Premiere: “Triptych - The Mirror with three Faces” by Lera Auerbach

The Delta Piano Trio, founded in Salzburg in 2013 by the three young Dutch musicians Gerard Spronk (violin), Irene Enzlin (violoncello) and Vera Kooper (piano) will perform the Dutch premiere of Lera Auerbach’s Trio No. 2 “Triptych – The Mirror with three Faces” on 1 December 2016 in the Great Hall of the Muziekgebouw aan’t IJ in Amsterdam.

This work was commissioned by the Arizona Friends of Chamber Music for the Winter Festival 2012 in Tucson, where it was premiered on 9 March 2012 by Martin Beaver (violin), Clive Greensmith (violoncello) and Lera Auerbach at the piano. One year later, the Trio Weiss-Kaplan-Newman became the co-commissioners of the work, presenting it in many countries of the world, including on 12 March 2015 at the Düsseldorf Tonhalle.

Lera Auerbach comments on her work as follows:
“I like the idea of exploring the dramatic, ritualistic side of music. In The Mirror with three Faces, one can look at three different faces or roles of the same person or at three distinct personalities - each with its own face. Each character (i.e. instrument) may be isolated, in conflict, or in harmony with others and itself. This trio explores individuality and ensemble, harmony and conflict, one in three or three in one – that is the ambiguous nature of this work, structured in the form of a triptych.”
