Henja Semmler Violin

In times of a pandemic calling for distance and isolation, one topic, in particular, has come to the fore: loneliness – a feeling that has always left deep traces in people. At the same time, lonely moments also produced great art. Clara Schumann created her chamber music masterpiece – the Trio in G minor – after suffering a miscarriage on the secluded island of Norderney. Franz Schubert harnessed the feelings of loneliness in his E-flat Major Trio: Through distant harmonic spheres, we get confronted with melancholy and confidence in equal measure. With the premiere of the »Trio« by Julia Purgina, the Oberon Trio finally shows us what kind of sonic inspirations can bring us being alone in a lockdown.
