ANAM | The Lark Ascending

28 March 2020 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm AEDT

$25 – $62

ONE OF THE PLANET’S GREATEST VIOLINISTS, ANTHONY MARWOOD, RETURNS TO ANAM TO LEAD AN EXCEPTIONAL PROGRAM FOR STRINGS.

  • The concert includes one of the world’s favourite pieces of classical music, Vaughan Williams’ The Lark Ascending
  • Soviet composer Raskatov’s bitter-sweet homage to Mozart is a spellbinding delight, and a complement to Stravinsky’s tribute to Tchaikovsky – the divertimento drawn from his ballet score The Fairy’s Kiss
  • If you’re not familiar with the Two pieces for string octet by the young Shostakovich – he wrote them in his teens – they are an amazing discovery in their dramatic contrast of wistfulness and manic energy
