Event Details

Quercus is a new Melbourne-based horn trio, showcasing the distinctive combination of horn, violin and piano. Interested in championing contemporary and Australian works, their diverse and dynamic experience melds to create something truly special.

Their performance in Primrose Potter Salon shifts focus to Australian composers who cross continents, with strong roots both here and abroad. Beginning with a piece from Melbournian Don Banks written for the 1962 Edinburgh Festival, the jazz-influenced, loosely serialist horn-trio captures light moods.

Roger Smalley’s Horn Trio is a little-known gem of the literature. A masterful rendering of the myriad colours and emotional possibilities wrought from these instrumental forces.

Larry Sitsky’s Horn Trio Barerq takes material from the slow movement of his second violin concerto – influenced by the Greek-Amernian philosopher Gurdjieff and part of Sitsky’s ‘Armenian phase’ – and reworks it for horn trio to mesmerising effect.
