Winter Strings in the Salon
Mozart, String Quintet in G minor, K516.
‘They’ say that Mozart’s G minor string quintet is one of the greatest chamber music works. From the restlessness of the opening movement, the beauty and sorrow of the slow movement and, in the end, the cheerfulness of the final movement.
Mozart liked the viola, with its deep tone and warm sound. His use of two violas in this work highlights the rich colours of this often maligned instrument.
Performed by the Canberra Symphony Orchestra with –
Barbara Jane Gilby, violin
Pip Thompson, violin
Lucy Carrigy-Ryan, viola
Sarah Zhu, viola
Patrick Suthers, cello.
Two ticket types (as usual) – one with a two course lunch (main and dessert) at $70 and simple entry at $20.
|When||Sunday 23 July from 1PM to 3PM|
