The Weekend Australian - Review - - Out & About - Mur­ray Black

Beethoven’s Favourite Guest di­rec­tor Lorenza Bor­rani and the Aus­tralian Cham­ber Or­ches­tra’s crys­talline tex­tures and well-de­fined sec­tional bal­ances in­sight­fully il­lu­mi­nate the full range of Beethoven’s in­ner-voice de­tails. This ar­range­ment proves es­pe­cially ef­fec­tive in the quar­tet’s two great slow move­ments. Sus­tain­ing a well-blended ensem­ble sound and ex­pan­sive phras­ing, the per­form­ers as­tutely judge both move­ments’ ex­pres­sive peaks and troughs to achieve com­pelling moods of rapt qui­etude. Schu­bert’s Five Min­uets with Six Trios, D89, pro­vide an el­e­gant segue be­tween Sch­nit­tke and Beethoven. Llewellyn Hall, Wil­liam Her­bert Place, Can­berra. Tonight only, 8pm. Tick­ets: $43-$137. Book­ings: 1800 444 444 or on­line. Du­ra­tion: 1hr 45min, in­clud­ing 20min in­ter­val.
