Omega Ensemble: Brahms, Chindamo & Westlake

Mon 2 December @ 19:00 - 20:30

$39 – $79

FORCE FATALE

Arguably Johannes Brahms’ most profound chamber work, the Clarinet Quintet is an energized by rhapsodic, wild gestures and flickering textures, and was written as part of the composer’s surprising re-emergence from retirement.

A musical polyglot in the tradition of Bernstein and Previn, ARIA Award-winner Joe Chindamo is routinely described as one of the best jazz pianists in Australia., though his composition transcends jazz, having composed concertos, chamber music and film music.

With a career spanning over four decades, first as a clarinettist and then composer of music for the concert hall and film, Nigel Westlake is one of Australia’s most celebrated composers. From the haunting last chord of the first movement to the elegiac central movement through to the robust cross-rhythms of the finale, his Piano Trio is revered as one of the composer’s most stunning and accomplished chamber works.
