Castlemaine Steiner School
Saturday 24th October, 3pm
Following the success of their sell-out concert last year featuring Brahms’ first string sextet, Castlemaine Chamber Players return this year to present Brahms’ second string sextet and Fintan Murphy performs another exquisite solo Bach suite.
Brahms – String Sextet No 2 in G
Bach – Solo played by Fintan Murphy
Schubert – String Quintet in C, 1st movement
Carl Vine – String Quintet, 1st movement
In an unusual pairing, Castlemaine Chamber Players will play the first movement of the famous String Quintet in C by Schubert, one of the masterworks of the chamber music repertoire. This is followed with the first movement of Carl Vine’s 2009 String Quintet, composed as a concert companion to Schubert’s quintet, and dedicated to human rights lawyer Julian Burnside.
