Bowral Autumn Music Festival: Italian Serenade

25 March 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm AEDT

Italian Serenade with Acacia Quartet

The festival closes with Verdi’s fantastic but seldom-performed String Quartet in E minor. Clearly operatic in nature, this work is full of Italian passion, excitement and drama. Acacia Quartet is also thrilled to be presenting the world premiere of the beautiful String Quartet No 3 by Australian composer John Peterson alongside Puccini’s melancholic ‘Crisantemi’ and the vibrant, comic-opera-like ‘Italian Serenade’.


  • Hugo Wolf – ‘Italian Serenade’ in G major
  • Giacomo Puccini – ‘Crisantemi’
  • John Peterson – String Quartet No 3 (world premiere)


  • Giuseppe Verdi – String Quartet in E minor

‘Organ Preludes’ with Dr Allan Beavis, OAM

  • Alexandre Guilmant – Choral et Fugue (Sonata No. 5)
