Perth International Arts Festival presents: Chamber Music Weekend
Celebrate some of the finest music written for intimate performance.
Date: Friday 26 February – Sunday 28 February 2016
Venue: Winthrop Hall, University of Western Australia
Over three days we bring you 18 events performed on a purpose-built stage inside the beautiful acoustic of Winthrop Hall and in the gardens outside.
Sample the full breadth of style and expression, from Mozart to Messiaen, Bach to Bartok, Liszt to Ligeti and indulge your every chamber music whim in a program performed by the finest soloists and ensembles from Australia and abroad.
Highlights of this special weekend include a free complete performance of the Bach Suites for Solo Cello by acclaimed soloist Michael Goldschlager and a marathon performance of Satie’s mythical Vexations going through the night from Saturday evening. You’re also invited to a masterclass on keyboard music, as well as the ‘Haydn Lottery’ where you, the audience, select a work for Tinalley String Quartet to rehearse and prepare for the very first time. Sunday is set aside for Schubertiade, with six performances dedicated to the works of one of the great romantics.
Join us for a single concert or settle in for the day and bring a picnic or take advantage of the food and wine available while you hang out under the trees or snooze on the grass between concerts. Weekend passes are also available to ensure you get your fill of this musical feast.
All sessions are general admission.
