Festival Concert 6 | Finale

28 Apr 2019


2019 musica viva festival


From the tiny scintillating lines of Varèse’s flute solo Density 21.5 to the rich warmth of Bruch’s sweeping Octet with bass, the Festival’s final concert finishes in style as an opportunity to farewell the musicians we’ve come to admire over the previous four days.

Of special interest is a world premiere from Queensland composer Nicole Murphy, commissioned for the Festival and featuring the combined power of the Goldner and Dover Quartets. 

This Festival Finale concert is dedicated to the Hon. Jane Mathews AO for her contribution to music in Australia and, in particular, for her support of Musica Viva.
