A Feast of Music 2017 – Daylesford Chamber Music Festival

Now in its fifth year, MCO’s delightful and delicious weekend of music and food in Daylesford continues with five events over three days, with guests including Genevieve Lacey and Hamer Quartet.

Hamer Quartet

The Hamer Quartet, winners of the Asia Pacific Chamber Music Competition in 2009, is one of Australia’s finest chamber ensembles. Recently reformed, they present iconic quartets by Beethoven and Dvořák, with the Victorian première of Lachlan Skipworth’s Japan inspired quartet, Yamagoe.

Salon Sessions – Brahms Piano Quartet

In this MCO Salon Session, our musicians join Louisa Breen to perform Brahms’ irrepressible and epic Second Piano Quartet. Held in the Recital Centre’s Salon, the Sessions include substantial canapés, premium wines, and an opportunity to meet the musicians, creating a new, incredibly intimate way to experience and enjoy great music.
