Festival Concert 4 | Essence

27 Apr 2019


musica viva festival 2019


Mozart’s Flute Quartet, which opens the concert, was written as the purest of chamber music, to be performed at home with friends. This was almost certainly the same setting for Schubert’s justly famous ‘Trout’ Quintet, which closes the evening.

In between are works with big ideas, written for the public stage: Matthew Hindson’s vibrant Second Quartet celebrates the thrill of scientific discovery, while Ravel’s Sonata began as a small commemoration to his late compatriot Debussy, before expanding into a duo he described as symphonic in its breadth.
