Gal­ston Con­certs

Galston, Glenorie and Hills Rural News - - News -

The Gal­ston Con­certs close their 2015-16 se­ries with a Mozart & Vi­enna mini-fes­ti­val of two pro­grams, Satur­day and Sun­day 7 & 8 May, in Gal­ston Unit­ing Church.

The week­end of Mostly Mozart fea­tures Vi­enna's Ensemble I af­ter their Clas­sics Con­certs Cruise for Princess Cruises in April per­form­ing pop­u­lar clas­sics for piano and strings by Mozart, Beethoven, Schu­bert and other Vi­en­nese greats.

A 3pm start on the Satur­day sees Mozart, Duos & Dances with duo pi­anists Brachi Tilles and Jenni Flem­ming, Jenni be­ing the founder and Di­rec­tor of the Aus­tralian Piano Duo Fes­ti­val at the Queens­land Conservatorium.

Founder vi­o­lin­ist and Leader of Ensemble I, Spiros Ran­tos, and cel­list Gwyn Roberts will join their pi­anist part­ners in string­pi­ano con­trasts.

The 3pm Sun­day start sees Mozart & the ‘ Trout’ with a first half of Mozart’s ‘Mar­riage of Fi­garo’, a Piano Con­certo and a Quartet. Moth­ers Day Mozart!

The se­cond half fea­tures one of the great­est and most beloved of all the Clas­sics, Schu­bert’s Trout Quintet, with a ru­mour of Mozart’s Eine Kleine Nacht­musik to close the fes­ti­val.

Ensemble I takes its name from the Chi­nese phi­los­o­phy of the I Ching con­cept of change, hence the var­ied com­bi­na­tions and sounds through the group’s con­certs.

Their multi-na­tional ori­gins – Greek, Is­raeli, Cana­dian, Hun­gar­ian, Taswe­gian and Queens­lan­der - are matched by their suc­cesses in well over forty coun­tries and on high seas con­certs cruises.

The fes­ti­val will also see the launch of Young Artists per­for­mance awards for 2017, a ma­jor goal of Gal­ston Con­certs to en­cour­age the next gen­er­a­tion of young mu­si­cians.
