Wyvern Music Forestville presents Bold Beginnings

11 August 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm AEST

Free – $25

Wyvern Music Forestville presents “Bold Beginnings”, an intriguing program of chamber works and arrangements by the Sydney Symphony Fellows.

Now in its 18th year, the Sydney Symphony Fellowship is recognised as one of the world’s leading orchestral training programs, providing exceptional young musicians with an intensive year-long program of mentoring, performances and workshops.

A fanfare in the form of Purcell’s Fantasias for brass trio, boldly begins the concert, and concludes with Carl Friedrich Ebers’ arrangement of Beethoven’s First Symphony, following the 19th century custom of publishing chamber arrangements of popular symphonies. Iain Farrington has continued this practice into the 21st Century with his arrangement of Humperdinck’s Hansel and Gretel Overture. Benjamin Britten’s Sinfonietta is a mini symphony for eleven players and was his first published work, establishing him as a major force in British music. Peggy Polias is a remarkable young Australian composer whose work Street Sketches explores the relationship between popular and classical music.
