Musica Viva International Concert Season 2018

1st October - 31st October

Superstars of the Baroque, Tafelmusik, deliver an incredible theatrical expedition in Bach and His World, legendary German clarinettist Sabine Meyer makes a surprising appearance in the company of the remarkable Alliage Quintett for a program of orchestral favourites especially arranged for this unusual ensemble. A leading virtuoso fêted the world over, violinist Ray Chen undertakes his second national tour for Musica Viva with pianist Julien Quentin.

Electrifying wizard of the mandolin Avi Avital joins the energetic young Giocoso String Quartet to present masterworks old and new. For more than 70 years the unparalleled Borodin Quartet has encapsulated generations of Russian string-playing tradition; it once more brings its trademark musical depth and perfection to our concert halls.

Joyce Yang, Silver Medallist in the 12th Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, offers two powerhouse programs of scintillating piano music, and the Benedetti Elschenbroich Grynyuk Trio perform sparkling programs that combine the trios of Brahms and Ravel with solo sonatas by Strauss and Prokofiev.

Australian composition figures strongly through the season, with new works commissioned from Elena Kats-Chernin, Elizabeth Younan and Matthew Hindson, and repeat performances of Gordon Kerry’s atmospheric Im Winde piano trio.
