“…a performance of such accomplished detail and confidence…” - SMH


October 28, 6pm Salon, Melbourne Recital Centre

Melbourne Chamber Players explores contemporary and 20th-century composers whose daring music is praised for capturing a national identity. A premiere of Nigel Sabin dazzles with distinctive Australianness, reflecting the idea his daring works ‘convert the enemies of contemporary music’. Phantasy by Imogen Holst swirls with lyricism amid its treasured English pastoral aesthetic, and Rimsky-Korsakov’s Quintet reveals all the brilliance and playfulness of his colourful style.
