Dubbed ‘musically combustible’ [Criticks UK] for their vibrant performances, the Camerata brings together a diverse group of talented young multi-instrumental music scholar-performers and researchers, many of whom are the recipients of prestigious awards for music performance and/or research.
The opening concert of 2016 features instrumental and vocal music from the Baroque to the present, including Corelli, Handel, Vivaldi Violin Concerto from L’Estro Armonico (performed from the original Baroque first edition), Telemann Viola Concerto, and the stunning 19th century Wieniawski’s Legende for violin in a new arrangement specially created for the Camerata.
The concert will also premiere a new work for piano and strings by Australian composer Leon Coward, whose recent projects include the Canadian short-film 2BR02B based on the Kurt Vonnegut story, which was screened at the 2016 Sci-Fi London international film festival. Profits from the concert support the Don Spencer Australian Children’s Music Foundation.
