Quercus Trio + Luo + Griffiths: Sutherland and Brahms
Tue 13 September @ 19:30Free
Margaret Sutherland’s House Quartet for horn, clarinet, viola and piano has not been heard since the composer’s own lifetime. The manuscript and parts had been lost, and an archival recording – with the composer at the piano – from the 1940s has been the only means of hearing the work. In this monumental concert audiences will hear this important chamber work revived. Carla Blackwood, French horn lecturer at the Conservatorium, commissioned Melbourne composer Tim Dargeville to transcribe the work from the recording, and this is its first hearing. Paired with the Sutherland is Johannes Brahms’ horn trio, performed by Quercus Trio – Carla Blackwood, Elisabeth Sellars and Rhodri Clarke.
