Australian Haydn Ensemble
AHE Reflects on a Year of Change
AHE is delighted to return to the City Recital Hall stage this December with a performance directed by Erin Helyard, "Australia's most engaging soloist" (Limelight Magazine). The program features Haydn's poignantly titled Symphony Tempora Mutantur (Times are Changed) along with Helyard performing Mozart's beautiful early Piano Concerto No.6 and Boccherini's Piano Quintet Op.57 No.3.
Haydn's Symphony No.64 Tempora Mutantur (Times Are Changed) is one of the few that he named himself. It takes its title from the well-known poetic Latin statement "Times are changed; we, too, are changed within them." It provides a fitting commentary on a most turbulent year.
The Ensemble will also perform Boccherini's beautiful and brooding Piano Quintet in E minor along with the Australian premiere of Johann Salomon's outstanding eighteenth-century chamber version of Haydn's Symphony No.64 for flute, strings and fortepiano.
