Sydney Mozart Society: Selby & Friends
24 May @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm AEST
Ticket Prices: Adults $48 | Seniors/Pensioners $45 | Full-time students $18 | Children under 13 free
Kathryn Selby is one of Australia’s most acclaimed chamber musicians. Her reputation as a soloist and ensemble pianist is formidable. In this concert, she is joined by two distinguished musicians: Sydney Symphony Orchestra Concertmaster, Andrew Haveron and Australian Chamber Orchestra Principal ‘Cello, Timo-Viekko Valve. Together, Selby and Friends create exciting musical chemistry.
Their concert explores the warmth and intimacy in Beethoven’s music. It begins with Beethoven’s variations on a theme from Mozart’s Magic Flute; piano and ‘cello sing of love in its many moods – tenderness, exuberance and yearning. Beethoven’s violin sonata Op. 24 explores a lyrical world filled with grace, generosity and elegance. While Carl Reinecke’s arrangement of Beethoven’s orchestral concerto Op. 56 reaches deep emotions with its rich musical textures and powerful expression.
