Formed in 2011, the Australian Haydn Ensemble is now regarded as one of Australia’s finest orchestras and chamber music groups. The ensemble specialises in music of the Classical era performed on historical instruments under the leadership of Artistic Director, Skye McIntosh. The ensemble has its own vibrant annual concert season; it tours nationally and has appeared at overseas venues and festivals.
The ensemble’s concert for Sydney Mozart Society showcases five of its exceptional musicians: Skye McIntosh (violin), Matthew Greco (violin), James Eccles (viola), James Bush (‘cello) and Melissa Farrow (flute).
With their historical instruments and consummate musicianship, these performers evoke the elegance and radiant character of classical music. Their concert begins with Boccherini’s lushly vivid flute quintet. Two equally luminous string quartets from Mozart and Haydn follow. Mozart’s lyrical flute quartet concludes the concert.
- Boccherini Flute quintet no 8 in G minor, op 19 no 2
- Mozart String quartet no 14 in G major, K 387, Spring
- Haydn String quartet no 35 in D minor, op 42, Hob III:43
- Mozart Flute quartet no 1 in D major, K 285
If you become a member of the Society, your annual membership fee covers entry to all concerts in the season. This works out at only $28 per concert (and $8 per concert for student members)
