After Mahler’s death conductor Bruno Walter praised the ‘artistic power and eminent humanity’ of the composer’s work. Audiences were initially puzzled by Mahler’s First Symphony, with its amazing depiction of dawn with distant birdcalls and fanfares, and its tragicomic evocation of the famous children’s image, The Huntsman’s Funeral.

Chopin, like Mahler, embodied human feelings and responses to nature in his music. Among his early works are several for piano with orchestral or ensemble accompaniment. Composed in 1830, his First Concerto exists in several contemporary versions including this one for piano and string quintet. Full of arresting moments and sparkling dance tunes, it is especially celebrated for its slow movement that, as the composer wrote, ‘should give the impression of gazing at a spot which brings back a thousand memories. It should be like dreaming in beautiful springtime – by moonlight.’

Gordon Kerry has written a large amount of chamber music for ensembles in Australia and overseas, and has been inspired by David Rowden’s lyrical sound to write his Clarinet Quintet.
