SYDNEY COFFEE CONCERT SERIES 2017
Concluding the 2017 Sydney Coffee Concert season is an unassailable masterwork: Schubert’s celestial C major String Quintet. Schubert famously opted for his quintet to feature an extra cello rather than the more standard second viola. In what was to be one of his final compositions, his choice pays off, in music of extraordinary pathos and depth. The Goldners are joined on this occasion by Umberto Clerici, Principal Cello with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra.
