Australia Ensemble: Cool Fire

Tickets: $55/$42/$33/$15 (Adult/Senior/Concession/Student rush)

“… The Australia Ensemble always fills me with high expectations of consummate musical performance” Daniel Kaan, ClassikON 2016

Much-loved Australian composer Miriam Hyde’s Trio for flute, oboe and piano, sets the tone of neoclassical elegance in this program of contrasts. The Australia Ensemble are also excited to present the Australian premiere of American Paul Moravec’s zesty ensemble work Cool Fire – its title portends diverse character and depth. From this emotional soundscape the ensemble traverses to the opulence of Gabriel Pierné’s Piano Quintet. Although not a household name, Pierné was a multi-talented musician, organist and conductor whose output was influenced the greats of the French Romantic tradition including César Franck. These treats are paired with Mozart, whose Oboe Quartet, a beautifully poised and highly virtuosic piece of chamber music, resembles a concerto for oboe. This quartet encapsulates both the cool and fiery elements of our program, namely by Mozart’s balanced classical structures infused with virtuosic musical passion.
