Once in a while a collaboration reaches the heart of why we make music. This concert honours such a collaboration, built on friendship and love.
Composer Carl Vine was for two decades Musica Viva Australia’s Artistic Director. In 2019 Paul Kildea assumed the mantle, and for this concert asked his predecessor to create a new work for a much-admired soloist and string quartet, commissioned by a longstanding subscriber wishing to immortalise the joyous memory of her late daughter.
Classical guitarist Karin Schaupp will premiere this celebration of life and music. Joining the award-winning soloist on stage is the renowned Flinders Quartet, which embarks on its first national tour since welcoming Wilma Smith as second violin.
The concert includes Imogen Holst’s moving Phantasy Quartet, Southern Cross Dreaming by Australia’s Richard Charlton, and deliciously contrasting works for guitar and strings from three very different Italians, ending with two movements from Boccherini’s fiery Fandango, a work they recorded in 2010 for ABC Classics.
This special program captures the spirit of works rarely heard but exceedingly inspired – all carrying the passion, artistry and friendship that characterise Musica Viva Australia’s concerts.
