The Sydney Symphony Fellowship and Artistic Director Roger Benedict make their return to Goulburn with a chamber music program that explores the limitless possibilities of this ensemble of 12 musicians.
Eric Ewazen’s bright and brassy fanfare opens the concert, and Francis Poulenc’s incidental music to The Misunderstood Gendarme is full of his quirky humour. Prokofiev’s playful side is also on show in his Quintet. Originally written for a travelling ballet troupe performing a ballet set in the circus, it’s a feat of musical acrobatics, employing unusual instrumentation to extraordinary effect. Experience another unusual combination of instruments in Australian composer Elena Kats-Chernin’s Redgum suite, written for trumpet, trombone and double bass. Beethoven’s masterful Septet, one of the greatest works of chamber music and a feat of virtuosity for all seven players, completes the program.
Now in its 18th year, the Sydney Symphony Fellowship is recognised as one of the world’s leading orchestral training programs, providing exceptional young musicians with an intensive year-long program of mentoring, performances, workshops, and immersion in the world of the Sydney Symphony Orchestra.
