Description

Robert and Clara

Natalie WILLIAMS | New work (Letters to Clara) - first performance (2018)

Clara SCHUMANN | Piano Trio in G minor Op. 17 (1846)

György KURTÁG | Hommage à (Robert) Schumann Op. 15b (1990)

Robert SCHUMANN | Piano Quintet Op. 44 in E flat major (1842)


There is something precious about the intimacy of chamber music that allows an exploration of boundless emotional depths, from despair through to celebratory tones of ebullience and joy. The 2018 Australia Ensemble Subscription Series embraces these emotions via great chamber music from some of Australia’s most experienced and in-demand musicians.

The story of Robert and Clara Schumann is one of great Romance and sorrow, and our tribute to both composers pairs the brilliance of Clara Schumann’s G minor Piano Trio with Robert Schumann’s Piano Quintet. Two complementary works pay further tribute, by Hungarian György Kurtag and a newly commissioned work by Australian composer Natalie Williams.

I look forward to sharing these delights with you throughout 2018.
