Australia Ensemble subscription concert - Schubert's Octet: August 19
Who:Australia Ensemble
Venue:Sir John Clancy Auditorium
When:19 Aug 2017, 8pm - 10pm

Schubert’s Octet is irresistible chamber music written on a vast scale. A rich and colourful instrumental palette helps sustain a broad structure which is an offshoot of the eighteenth century serenade tradition and realised with unmistakable Schubertian inflections. In contrast, the rest of the program explores exquisite, smaller-scale structures with Roussel’s compact and enchanting Divertissement for winds and piano, as well as the impressionistic delights of English composer Madeline Dring’s Trio. We are proud to feature the performance of Mark Grandison’s Blakeman Prize-winning work Riffraction in this program. This new artistic initiative was the creation of musical patron Jonathan Blakeman, for which the Australia Ensemble is proud to be a partner.

Presented by Radio National’s The Music Show host, Andrew Ford, this program represents a new offering from the Australia Ensemble: an exploration of music written by composers for film as well as concert music that makes use of the moving image as part of its presentation. We explore music by some of the famous names from the screen as well as music by Andrew Ford himself, and a new work by Felicity Wilcox that explore the sound of pictures in novel and exciting ways.

The season ends on a festive note with Tchaikovsky’s glorious string sextet Souvenir de Florence.
