This extraordinary final program for the 2023 Season brings together two highly accomplished guest artists of the younger generation who are making great waves now they are back in Australia - the brilliant violinist Ike See, previously Assoc. Concertmaster of the Adelaide Symphony and now a core member of the tightly knit ACO, and solo cellist and lecturer at the Melbourne Conservatorium, Richard Narroway.
The program opens with Copland’s famous Vitebsk, a beautiful but brief work by the great American composer. We follow with the passionate and powerful Arensky Piano Trio No.1 after having planned to present Arensky’s second piano trio in 2022. And to bring the Season to a close, Schubert’s delightful, melody-filled piano trio composed in the last year of his life - a testament to a beautiful and rich life extinguished too soon.
