Much-loved and much-lauded, Melbourne ensemble Ensemble Liaison (clarinettist David Griffiths, pianist Timothy Young and cellist Svetlana Bogosavljevic) have been wowing audiences with their verve, charisma and musicianship for over 15 years. To open 2022’s festival, they perform Beethoven’s classic clarinet trio, and Piazzolla’s Four Seasons of Buenos Aires.

DVOŘÁK PIANO QUARTET
(10 SEPTEMBER, SAT 11:00am)

Dvorak Piano Quartet

Youthfully charming and magnificently untroubled, Dvořák’s early first piano quartet is a delicious pleasure that deserves to be heard much more. We are also delighted to commission a new work for piano quartet by celebrated Melbourne composer Linda Kouvaras. Musicians of Melbourne Chamber Orchestra are joined by leading pianist Stefan Cassomenos for this recital.

VIVALDI’S FOUR SEASONS
(10 SEPTEMBER, SAT 2:30pm)

Daylesford Town Hall

Vivaldi's Four Seasons

Get your superlatives out – Vivaldi’s ground-breaking, colourful, monumentally-famous masterpiece comes to Daylesford. Each concerto vividly renders the hallmarks of the Italian seasons in music, from birdsong in Spring to pesky flies in Summer. Join MCO and four brilliant soloists as they bring this masterpiece to life. In this performance, we are delighted to (finally) perform Calvin Bowman’s Daylesford Music which was commissioned by Festival donors.

KERRY & MOZART QUINTETS
(11 SEPTEMBER, SUN 11:00am)

Daylesford Town Hall

Kerry & Mozart Quintets

A beautiful exercise in contrasts to complete our 2022 Festival. Victorian composer Gordon Kerry writes some of the most exciting music in Australia today. His bright, prismatic String Quintet No 1 won Instrumental Work of the Year in 2013. Mozart’s fourth string quintet is a searching work filled with touching pathos, dissolving into effervescent rapture in the finale. Performed by musicians of the Orchestra.
