★★★★★ – “One of Australia’s most forward-thinking Ensembles…”
Presented by Omega Ensemble
When performing his own music, the great Romantic showman Frédéric Chopin preferred the private apartments of friends and patrons to the grand concert halls of Paris, often arranging his thrilling Piano Concertos for quintets.
In this tradition, Omega Ensemble opens their 2021 Season with a program of three “quincertos”, including Chopin’s first piano concerto performed by acclaimed pianist Clemens Leske, Gordon Kerry’s new Clarinet Quintet performed by Clarinettist David Rowden, and the world premiere of Elena Kats-Chernin’s ‘Night and Now’, a new flute quintet based on her Flute Concerto and performed by flautist Sally Walker for whom the original concerto was written.
