“It’s a great opportunity for us to perform at one of Sydney’s finest venues, and we are proud to be associated with Fine Music. To the best of my knowledge, we are the only group in Sydney currently playing this repertoire - hot jazz and dance orchestra music from the 1920s” – Geoff Power.

MOYA HENDERSON Kudikynah Cave
BEETHOVEN String Quartet in E flat Op 74, Presto, Allegretto con variazioni

PROKOFIEV Quintet, Op.39
Tema con variazoni
Andante energico
Adagio pesante
Allegro precipitato, ma non troppo presto
Andantino

“This particular piece is probably one of the most difficult pieces of chamber music ever written… it’s scored for oboe, clarinet, violin, viola and double bass. The interplay between the woodwind and the strings in particular is something that the audience should listen out for” – John Keene, Double Bass Fellow.

GERARD WILLEMS

CHOPIN Scherzo No 1 in B minor Op 20
CHOPIN Scherzo No 3 in C-sharp minor Op 39

“It shall be a pleasure to take part in the Live from the Joan concert. Playing in this live broadcast is a wonderful way to share the music I love: in this case Chopin’s Scherzo No’s 1 and 3. These are dramatic and colourful and show off the beautiful Bosendorfer in the hall, which has a great acoustic” – Gerard Willems.

“ We do a lot of live radio, performing in small studio spaces to usually one appreciative radio announcer! Having an audience to work with creates the opportunity for an exciting concert, as I believe a performance is a two-way relationship between the audience and the performer” – Andrew Piper.
