Musica Viva Festival Concert #6

23 Apr 2017

Zukerman Trio


MUSICA VIVA FESTIVAL 2017


Fernande Decruck’s Sonata is the best-known of her many works for saxophone, its melodic inventiveness reflecting her Parisian studies as well as her years in America. It is one of three works in this concert which are completely new to Musica Viva’s stages, alongside George Crumb’s Little Suite (performed by his friend Lambert Orkis) and the world premiere of a string octet by young Adelaide composer and cellist, Jakub Jankowski. In the midst, like the chamber music monument it is, stands Beethoven’s glorious ‘Archduke’ Trio.
