Our friends at Ironwood announce their 2017 Concert Series
Experience Ironwood’s vibrant 2017 season devoted to three centuries of incredible chamber music, drawing on world-class expertise in historically informed performance (HIP). We are celebrating a wonderful decade of performing together and present 4 concert programs for 2017 with some of Australia’s finest chamber musicians.
We kick off in Season 1 with music from the stylus fantasticus era of seventeenth-century Europe showcasing the development in string technique, unusual and poetic effects of such composers as Schmelzer and Biber that delighted and entertained audiences in private and public settings. Season 2 continues our foray into the highly expressive world of Schumann and Brahms highlighting the nineteenth-century German string and piano style so vividly documented in Ironwood’s latest CD “Brahms: Tones of Romantic Extravagance” (ABC Classics). Between Seasons 2 and 3 we extend a warm invitation to join our much-awaited spring workshop offering specialised training in Classical and Romantic chamber music on period and modern instruments. This is a unique opportunity for Australians to learn and experience HIP styles and techniques based on the cutting-edge creative research of Ironwood’s stellar core members who are world leading educators. Season 3 takes listeners deep into the intimate, textured and sensuous sound world of Classical- era string quartets by Mozart, Graf and Haydn. Finally, Season 4 explores the proto-Romantic style of Schubert and Beethoven with a rare hearing of the Piano Quintet by a little-known contemporary of Beethoven – Anton Eberl.
