Selby & Friends' special tribute to the year-long celebrations surrounding the composer Ludwig van Beethoven, this concert presents one of Beethoven’s most iconic and recognizable works, the “Ghost” Trio, along with unusual and brilliant reduced versions of his larger works for piano trio by Beethoven himself. Brilliant young Australian violinist Harry Ward debuts with Selby & Friends and joins Artistic Director Kathryn Selby and her long-time collaborator, popular ACO Principal Cellist Timo-Veikko Valve. A mid-winter treat sure to be a favourite of the 2020 Season.
