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.

Whether fact or fiction, the image of Schubert strumming lieder accompaniments on his guitar persists in the public imagination. This image is the basis for a program that contrasts bright and energetic Australian chamber music for guitar with the warm glow of nineteenth century masterpieces including Schubert’s glorious late Piano Trio in E flat.

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

Paul Stanhope
