Album Notes
Taking its name after its ‘ghostly’ slow movement, Beethoven’s D major trio is a classic in the chamber music repertoire, with its dramatic contrasts and symphonic scale. Smetana’s passionate, life-affirming piano trio is dedicated to the memory of his musically-precocious daughter, who had tragically passed at the age of four from scarlet fever. The piano trio of fellow Australian composer Nigel Westlake is a favourite work of the Lyrebirds. Perhaps most widely known for his film soundtracks (including Babe), Westlake’s Piano Trio is filled with flowing lyrical gestures, and a virtuosic combination of rhythmic interplay and jazz-influenced melodies.

Lyrebird Trio is comprised of Australian musicians Glenn Christensen (violin), Simon Cobcroft (cello) and Angela Turner (piano). In July 2013, they won all piano trio prizes at the quadrennial Asia Pacific Chamber Music Competition. Lyrebird Trio are an Ensemble-In-Residence at the Queensland Conservatorium, Australia. Recent appearances have included residencies at the Banff Centre, Canada, Melbourne Recital Centre, Sydney Opera House, the Port Fairy Spring Music Festival, Musica Viva QLD, 4MBS Festival of Classics, and recordings and broadcasts for ABC-Classic FM, Australia's national broadcaster. Outside of the trio, Glenn Christensen is a member of the Australian Chamber Orchestra; Simon Cobcroft is Principal Cello with the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra, and Angela Turner is a lecturer at the Queensland Conservatorium, Griffith University.
