City Recital Hall, Sydney – BUY TICKETS

The Australian World Orchestra presents an all-star lineup of eclectic bravura in the AWO SIX; a formidable cast of virtuosic musicians together for one night only to perform an exciting and intimate chamber performance of Mendelssohn and Brahms. A not to be missed concert.

Featuring:

Natalie Chee violin (1st Concertmaster – SWR Symphony Orchestra, Stuttgart)
Daniel Dodds violin (Leader & Artistic Director – Festival Strings Lucerne)
Tahlia Petrosian viola (Gewandhaus Orchestra)
Andra Darzins viola (University of Music Stuttgart)
David Berlin cello (Principal Cello, Melbourne Symphony Orchestra)
Julian Thompson cello (Australian Chamber Orchestra)

Programme:

Felix Mendelssohn’s – String Quintet No. 2, Op.87  in B flat major

Johanne Brahms’ – String Sextet No.2, Op.36, in G major,  “Agathe”

After presenting large-scale orchestral concerts in Melbourne and Canberra, the AWO strips down to the bareness of a beautiful intimate chamber setting for Sydney audiences. AWO SIX will perform one night only at City Recital Hall where the audience will experience the brilliance of true musical mastery in an unforgettable chamber concert.

Mendelssohn’s String Quintet No.2 in B flat major is richly melodic and haunting, and a wonderful example of the composer’s genius ability to create romantic conversations between stringed instruments.

Brahms’ sextet No.2 in G major could easily be described as a musical expression of his infatuation with the soprano Agathe von Siebold. It is the universally relatable story of unrequited love sung by cellos, violas and violins.
