Quercus Trio: Smalley, Banks & Sitsky
22 June @ 18:00 - 19:00$20 – $25
This performance by Quercus horn trio shifts focus to Australian composers who cross continents, with strong roots both here and abroad. Beginning with a piece from Melbournian Don Banks written for the 1962 Edinburgh Festival, the jazz-influenced, loosely serialist horn-trio captures light moods.
Roger Smalley’s Horn Trio is a little-known gem of the literature. A masterful rendering of the myriad colours and emotional possibilities wrought from these instrumental forces.
Larry Sitsky’s Horn Trio Barerq takes material from the slow movement of his second violin concerto – influenced by the Greek-Amernian philosopher Gurdjieff and part of Sitsky’s ‘Armenian phase’ – and reworks it for horn trio to mesmerising effect.
