Ensemble Liaison welcomes soprano Emma Matthews.
After two previous critically acclaimed collaborations, Ensemble Liaison is delighted to welcome back one of Australia’s most in demand sopranos, Emma Matthews for an evening of her favourite arias by Bellini in special chamber arrangements by Ensemble Liaison. The concert will take a detour to Argentina for Piazzolla’s Four Seasons and also features the world premiere of a new work by the recently appointed Chamber Music Australia Chair of Composition at Monash University, Mary Finsterer.
This concert is in tribute to Captain Joseph Peter Lalor, the grandson of Peter Lalor who was the leader at the Eureka Stockade. To read the story of Captain Joseph Peter Lalor, visit the Your WWI Local Hero tab above.
