The Music of Friends with Christopher Wrench & Louise King

Christopher Wrench, virtuoso keyboard magician

From Louise King, leading light and cellist with the group Cello Dreaming, Brisbane comes news of a feast of music in the Chamber Music Series for 2011.

Supported by Theme and Variations Piano Services (Steinway) and Strings at Hand Corporate Entertainment, this intimate concert series will feature some of Brisbane’s foremost classical ensembles and recitalists.

This includes brilliant keyboard specialist Christopher Wrench, who will play the harpsichord with the Four Elements Contemporary Baroque Ensemble in the premier concert.

Commencing on the 28th February at the Judith Wright Centre for Contemporary Art at Brisbane the Chamber Music Series for 2011 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.
