Eggner Trio & Diana Doherty

26 Sep - 13 Oct 2020

2020 International Concert Season

The brothers of Austria's Eggner Trio personify so much of the history of chamber music. They literally grew up playing music together in their living room, the intended venue for so many works written for this most intimate artform. While each has their own solo career, together they make an inspiring and superbly matched ensemble, regularly appearing in the great concert halls of the northern hemisphere – and for Musica Viva. On this tour they’re joined by superb Australian oboist Diana Doherty in a unique and exciting virtuoso collaboration. With four famously engaging personalities on stage, expect a vividly memorable event! 

Martinů’s rarely heard Oboe Quartet is one of the finest works of its kind. This surprisingly unusual combination of instruments creates a sonic challenge eagerly accepted by Australian composer Lachlan Skipworth, whose own quartet will be heard for the first time. Piano trios by Beethoven, Smetana, Arensky and Schumann ground the programs in the richly rewarding world of Romantic melody and colour.
