Upcoming Events

Rigg Bequest Classic Music at Glenfern - Concert 4

Let All the World Sing!

Melbourne Capella Chamber Choir, conducted by Nicholas Cowall, with Rohan Murray at the piano, perform a program that contrasts Charles Stanford's Songs of the Sea, the much-loved Mystical Songs by Vaughan Williams with works by little known Soviet composer Georgi Sviridov (1915 – 1998), whose lyrical late-Romantic style finds immediate appeal with audiences. With one performance of this program at 3.00pm and another at 6.30pm, you can choose to be part of a small in-venue audience at either performance, or enjoy the 6.30pm performance as a live-streamed recital from the comfort of your own home!

Rigg Bequest Classic Music at Glenfern - Concert 6

A Musical Flower-Garden 2.0 for clarinet, cello & piano

Robert Schubert (clarinet), Josephine Vains (cello), Robert Chamberlain (piano), in a varied and highly contrasted program of chamber music, ranging from the Baroque conversational sensibility of J S Bach's Gamba Sonata in G, performed on modern instruments, through the Romantic exuberance of Bruch's pieces for clarinet, cello and piano, to the brooding passion and end-of-century energy of the little known Trio Op. 3 by Zemlinsky! Plus works by Australian composer Julian Yu and an amusing selection from Hindemith's Musikalisches Blumengartlein und Leyptziger Allerley for clarinet & cello.
