Selby and Friends: Quattro

1 November @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm AEDT

Tickets: Adult $63 | Senior $59 | Concession $46

Selby and Friends’ 2017 season finale presents a special program of iconic piano quartets with pianist Kathryn Selby joined by Trio Ex Patria – all principals of the SSO with Concertmaster Andrew Haveron, Principal Violist Tobias Breider and Principal Cellist Umberto Clerici.

Performing music by Mozart, Spanish master Turina and Fauré, the program relishes the addition of the viola to the realm of the piano trio in which the season has based itself. The piano quartet was an important element in the growth of chamber music and often was the choice of composers who were striving for a richer and more orchestral sound.

Enjoy the big gorgeous melodies of this extraordinary program to close the season.
