MUSIC FROM THE BASILICA OF SAN MARCO VENICE
MELBOURNE - Sun 8 June, 3pm Our Lady of Mount Carmel, 218 Richardson St Middle Park

San Marco, with its golden domes, dominates the profile of the ancient island city of Venice. Out of this majestic edifice has come some of the most beautiful and awe inspiring choral music ever written. The Australian Chamber Choir (ACC) will recreate some of the magic of San Marco, performing works by Monteverdi, Schütz, Willaert, Lotti and Gabrieli in their second concert of 2014, Music from the Basilica of San Marco Venice.

Adding to the aural magic, the 18-member Choir will be accompanied by an array of early instruments including cornetto, rackett, curtals, sackbuts, baroque violin and chamber organ.

Queensland Symphony Orchestra (QSO) and Brisbane Festival will present Javier Perianes, one of Spain’s most exciting new artists, for one night only performing Brahms’ Piano Concerto No.1 in the QPAC Concert Hall at 8pm on Saturday 14 September. The Orchestra will also perform Stravinsky’s Petrushka under the direction of Principal Guest Conductor, Eivind Aadland.

“Under Aadland’s inspired direction, this concert promises to showcase the Queensland Symphony Orchestra at its best,” QSO’s Director for Artistic Planning, Richard Wenn, said. “The Brahms is one of the top ten piano concertos in the repertory and Stravinsky’s Petrushka ballet score is vibrant and colourful,” Mr Wenn said. “The rhythms in Stravinsky’s Petrushka are infectious,” he added. “It is one of the most brilliant scores ever written.”
Mr Perianes and Mr Aadland first performed together with the QSO in 2010.
