Event Details

Acclaimed violinist Veronique Serret and Clemens Leske join forces for a powerful presentation of Beethoven’s ‘Spring'  Sonata. This work for violin and piano celebrates new directions in music bridging the Classical and Romantic periods.

Included also is the exhuberant Nonet by nineteeth century composer Louise Farrenc, a trailblazer for female composers to come, and Schubert’s Notturno, a gift of melody in all its glory. The evening concludes with one of Australia’s favourite composers, Elena Kats-Chernin and one of her most treasured works, Russian Rag, in a very special arrangement by the composer for Omega Ensemble.
