Experience well-known composers like Schubert, Rimsky-Korsakov and Dohnányi from the new and surprising perspective of their youthful works, as well as the world premiere of the exciting and accomplished Slipstream by rising Australian star, Holly Harrison. 

Franz SCHUBERT | Sonatensatz D28 (1812)

Holly HARRISON | Slipstream (2020)

Ernö DOHNÁNYI | Serenade in C Op.10 (1902)

Nikolai RIMSKY-KORSAKOV | Quintet in B flat (1876) for piano and winds

David Griffiths, clarinet; Dene Olding, violin; Dimity Hall, violin; Irina Morozova, viola; Julian Smiles, cello; and Ian Munro, piano 

with Emeritus artist Geoffrey Collins, flute; and guest artists Robert Johnson, horn; and Andrew Barnes, bassoon

At 27 the self-taught Rimsky-Korsakov was appointed professor at the St Petersburg Conservatoire, becoming, he joked, ‘possibly its very best pupil!’ In the Quintet for winds and piano he masters the classical styles while retaining his legendary ear for instrumental colour and joyful sense of rhythm.

Schubert’s Sonatensatz dates from 1812, the year his voice broke. Leaving choir school he continued studying with Antonio Salieri, producing in his teens a number of string quartets and songs. This substantial trio movement marries classical form to Schubert’s effortless lyrical originality.

Ernö Dohnányi wrote his serenade in 1902. It is a suite of lyrical and dance-like movements framed by marches, suffused in rich late-Romantic harmony with accents of Hungarian folk-music.

Young Australian composer Holly Harrison has established herself as a major voice with performances of her work in four continents. The long-awaited Slipstream, composed for the Australia Ensemble UNSW, evokes keening shanties and bagpipes, swing and bluegrass, dream states and visceral energy.
