Lera Auerbach‘s “Triptych - The Mirror with three Faces” in Canada

On 22 April 2015 the Weiss-Kaplan-Stumpf Piano Trio will perform the Canadian premiere of Lera Auerbach’s Piano Trio Nr. 2 “Triptych - The Mirror with three Faces” at the Academy of Music in Vancouver. On 12 March 2015 the Weiss-Kaplan-Stumpf Piano Trio already presented the German premiere of the work at the Tonhalle in Düsseldorf.

The composer comments his Piano Trio No. 2 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.”
