Get to know the performers and instruments of Omega Ensemble, in our captivating lunchtime series, A Taste of Omega. Take time out from your busy day with exquisite chamber music performed by some of the finest musicians in the country.
The cello is regarded as the most lyrical and beautiful of the string instruments. It can ‘sing’ lyrically and explore the depths of sound through its range of colours and timbres.
Join acclaimed Dutch cellist Teije Hylkema on a journey of the sublime as he presents Bach’s Cello Suite No.2 in D minor. Teije will also delight you with his passionate and engaging rendition of Beethoven’s Trio in B flat major. And be among the first in the world to hear the premiere of UK-based Australian composer Samuel Hogarth’s Trio for clarinet, piano and cello.
An impassioned concert that will leave your spirits soaring.
