The city of Brisbane in Queensland has an amazing musical life, despite there being a real lack of large venues. However the intimate musical experience thrives. Music making impressions for May & June includes: ORGAN GALA (4MBS Festival) Saturday 19 May , 7.30 pm St Andrew’s Uniting Church (Creek Street)…
A great voice like Sara Macliver, together with a thriving ensemble like The Camerata of St John’s at Brisbane led by talented violinist Brendan Joyce, should be a dynamic combination.
The beautiful sound of music produced by Italy’s unique ensemble iMusici will be sure to nurture the inner well-being of many Australians at Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane in February 2012. You will just have to be there.
I would ride through storm and tempest to attend performances played by such cellists as Steven Isserlis and Peter Wispelway or Luke Sulic and Stjepan Hauser
Brisbane based ensemble Alchemy will celebrate Christmas 2011 by performing Baroque music filled with energy, passion and joy featuring soprano Shelli Hulcombe
Commencing on the 28th February at the Judith Wright Centre for Contemporary Art at Brisbane the Chamber Music Series will include works from all the great composers spanning all the eras of music from the Baroque to the 21st Century.
The music of friends, as chamber music is often described today, is indeed appealing. Designed originally for a close up and personal encounter, it gently consumes the listener, providing a memorable experience that lifts the spirit and rewards the soul.
Alchemy performs regularly on original and replica instruments of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries when the art of harmony of music expressed perfect happiness and inner peace through bold and harmonic forms that could also be enjoyed by the soul in heaven. Based on the same principles of proportion and harmony present in architecture and gardens, Baroque music (circa 1600 – 1750) was all at once a triumph of structured symmetry and the manifestation of an ideal and a model for the community and its life.
