With the Sydney Symphony Orchestra Fellows

A concert of classical chamber music from the talented Sydney Symphony Orchestra Fellows.

The music comes from the musical riches of Bohemia. There’s Biber the 17th-Century composer who revolutionised violin playing forever but who wrote for other instruments too. And the delicious melodies of Dvořák, writing for string quartet. Janáček’s Youth offers some virtuoso writing for wind sextet, and Martinů’s acclaimed Nonet gives a bright and optimistic conclusion to the program. The odd man out is Finnish composer Esa-Pekka Salonen, represented by his colourful and upbeat piece for large ensemble, Catch and Release.

It all comes together in exuberant performances by some of the finest young talents of the Australian classical scene!
