Ironwood: Trésors des Pianistes
1 June 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm AEST$10 – $45
After a rapturous reception for Ironwood’s performance of Saint-Saëns piano quintet last year they continue their exploration of French Romantic piano music with a beautiful work by Louise Farrenc. A professor of piano for over thirty years at the Paris Conservatoire, Farrenc had connections with many of the great figures in musical history, and was also celebrated as a composer. ‘Les Trésors des Pianistes’ is an anthology of great works for the piano, edited by Farrenc and encompassing three centuries of music from across Europe. Ironwood complement Farrenc’s lyrical first piano quintet with one of Schubert’s charming early string quartets.
