SYDNEY SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA FELLOWS
Intimate Voices

Roger Benedict Artistic Director

SIBELIUS Intimate Voices – String Quartet, Op.56
JOLIVET Heptade for trumpet and percussion
PÄRT Pari Intervallo for clarinet, trombone and strings
PÄRT An den Wassern zu Babel… for trombone and chamber orchestra
NIELSEN Wind Quintet


In classical music the sound of a full symphony orchestra can knock your socks off, but when just a handful of musicians get together to play chamber music it’s like eavesdropping on a conversation that’s at once witty, profound and entertaining.

In this Sunday afternoon concert you can hear some of Australia’s finest young musicians perform a program that highlights this intimate, conversational side of music.

Nielsen’s Wind Quintet fits the bill perfectly: music that was composed for five of the composer’s friends to play, with each part written to suit the personality of the musician. Sibelius’s Intimate Voices string quartet was composed at a time of crisis, but turned out to be, in the composer’s words, “something wonderful. The kind of thing that brings a smile to your lips at the hour of death.” The energy and good cheer of these Nordic masters is balanced by Estonian Arvo Pärt: the serene Pari Intervallo and his haunting interpretation of Psalm 137 (By the rivers of Babylon…). And threading its way through the program is André Jolivet’s riotous and virtuosic tour de force for trumpet and percussion in yet another kind of musical conversation!
