String Quartet No. 13 in G Major. - Antonin Dvorák
CONCERT 4 - L’Histoire du Soldat
A tale of love, greed and temptation with a magic violin and the devil thrown in for good measure. Stravinsky’s genius is writing chamber music for the most diverse seven instruments you can think of, using their character and individual sounds to create a score that reflects the darkness of Rumez’s libretto.
CONCERT 5 - Bandaluzia Flamenco
Saturday night comes alive at our “Taberna de Tyalgum” with an evening of Flamenco. Pull up a table and enjoy a platter while ARIA nominated guitarist, Damian Wright leads this energetic ensemble in an evening dedicated to the Spanish art form.
