Four Winds 2018 Easter Festival begins with concerts which explore chamber music in unique settings, not only in the stunning Windsong Pavilion but also some exceptional local homes.
We’re thrilled to have the very knowledgeable and entertaining Guy Noble as our festival MC who will expertly guide us through the whole festival.
This year’s program features works by familiar composers and also music by some composers who will be less familiar but whose music definitely deserves to be heard, such as Peteris Vasks. This celebrated Latvian composer feels strongly about environmental issues, and this sense of nature, both pristine and destroyed, can be found in many of his works which are extremely communicative, and have a solid and muscular sense of harmony.
House Concert 1 is the first chance to hear The Golder String Quartet – one of Australia’s finest ensembles. We are so fortunate that artists of this calibre are performing for us on the South Coast and it’s a privilege to be collaborating with them again.
Concerts on Thursday feature the stunning voice of Emma Pearson and the pianist Ian Munro. It will be a treat to hear a composer performing his own work, particularly in such an intimate setting as a private home. Thursday is also is your chance to hear Emma Pearson perform Piazzolla’s ‘Oblivion’. Even though it’s a short work, its breathtaking beauty will be a delight in the Windsong Pavilion.
