Australian Haydn Ensemble: Schubert Songs – with David Greco

17 August @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm AEST

Renowned Australian baritone David Greco joins AHE for a magical program interwoven with Schubert’s lieder and chamber music ….

The Ensemble brings you a stunning selection of Schubert’s most-loved songs in newly commissioned chamber arrangements for string quintet and baritone, interwoven with a selection of Soireemovements from French composer Felicien David’s Les Quatre Seasons, a series of moving yet almost entirely unknown pieces for string quintet with double bass.

David Greco, one of Australia’s finest baritones, has performed throughout Europe with cutting-edge early music ensembles including Freiburg Barokorchester, Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, The Academy of Ancient Music, and Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra.

Audiences will also have a rare opportunity to hear movements from Schubert’s emotive String Quartet The Rosamunde performed on period instruments.
