The Chrysalis Trio, one of Melbourne’s most exciting new chamber ensembles, makes its debut in regional South Australia in 2019. This compelling program of flute, viola and harp is built around Debussy and Ravel’s masterworks for this unique instrumental combination. In between, a musical adventure takes you from the French baroque to the world of contemporary American composer Miguel del Aguila.
Formed in 2013 when all the musicians were studying at Australian National Academy of Music, the Chrysalis Trio comprises Katie Yap (viola 2014), Kiran Phatak (flute 2013) and Melina van Leeuwen (harp 2014). The Trio is one of the most exciting young ensembles to emerge from Melbourne’s fertile chamber music scene, and combines outstanding musicianship with a creative, inquisitive approach to repertoire.
Their name draws inspiration from their shared love of nature, and their time spent in the Royal Botanic Gardens in Melbourne, where they would take breaks from intensive rehearsals at ANAM, and discuss music, nature, history and philosophy.
Their 2019 ANAM Artists program is built around Debussy and Ravel’s masterworks for this unique instrumental combination. In between, a musical adventure takes you from the French baroque to the world of contemporary American composer Miguel del Aguila.
