Worlds intertwine and Vivaldi’s masterpiece is heard anew in this stunning adventure through Venice and the Mediterranean.event and ticket info
Musica Viva Australia
Music sparks emotion like nothing else; live music especially so. Here’s a concert with all the feelings: there’s loss, longing, love, and a bit of foot-stomping fandango flamboyance. Our guides into this other world are experts. The Flinders Quartet is renowned for unpretentious brilliance, with two decades of experience in old music and new. Classical guitar is a beautiful but famously difficult instrument to master, and most players sit very still in utmost concentration – which is why Karin Schaupp stands out. With incredible warmth and expressiveness, she welcomes us into her emotional world, and we leave enriched and heartened. Of special note in this program is a world premiere from composer and Musica Viva Australia’s previous Artistic Director Carl Vine, commissioned by a longstanding audience member to immortalise the joyous memory of her late daughter.
"Schaupp lives up to her reputation as one of the world’s most accomplished classically trained guitarists"Sydney Morning Herald
"Flinders Quartet has a unique and refreshing ability to present an exceptional standard of classical music in a way that feels warm and human"Classic Melbourne
