Festival Concert 1 | Opening Night

25 Apr 2019


musica viva festival 2019


Opening Night of the Festival offers a personal introduction to many of this year’s international artists: an opportunity to get to know them through music they love.

Double bass legend Edgar Meyer presents Bach’s popular first cello suite on his rich-toned instrument. Solo Bach is also the choice of violinist Tessa Lark, making her Australian debut. Pianist Andrew Tyson couples a favourite Chopin ballade with Berg’s intensely expressive sonata, and the Dover Quartet introduce themselves with Schumann’s heartfelt Third Quartet.
