WHAT TO EXPECT
A collection of inspired musical moments to treasure, from the tender beginnings of Rodrigo’s shimmering Cançoneta to Roger Smalley’s Strung-out – a visual spectacle that literally strings the players out in a single line across the stage, tossing their musical lines into the air. Exuberant cellist Giovanni Sollima’s Violoncelles, vibrez! sets the scene for a humourous duel featuring chief protagonists from two of Queensland’s highly respected music training institutions, Meta Weiss (Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University) and Patrick Murphy (University of Queensland). Tchaikovsky’s sensational showpiece, Souvenir de Florence for string sextet will be played by the full string orchestra, creating an almost symphonic version that is sure to provide a memorable gala season opening.
