Australian Chamber Orchestra (ACO): Milhaud, Mustonen & Schubert

Sun 18 September @ 14:30 - 16:30

$49 – $152

Joining the ACO ensemble is a Finnish pianist and composer Olli Mustonen, a much-admired ACO collaborator. This program also features the first ACO performance of Olli’s own Piano Quintet, a piece that overflows with drama and passion.

Franz Schubert was just 22 and on a walking holiday in the countryside when he wrote his buoyant Trout Quintet. High spirits and an unstoppable stream of melody flow through the music, sunnily evoking a time of freedom and a place of natural beauty.

Schubert’s popular song Die Forelle (The Trout) is heard in the fourth movement, but its innocence animates the whole. An unusual touch is the use of double bass, which sets the pianist free to dance brightly across the instrument’s higher registers.
