In collaboration with Ensemble Q I’m delighted to present the inaugural West End Chamber Music Festival at a brilliant new venue – Sideshow, on Vulture St.
Come and join us for 3 exclusive, intimate concerts in this very funky and relaxed environment. Choose something delicious from the bar and kitchen, sit in your household groups (safely socially distanced from other audience members) and not only hear the music, but feel it.
The audience is limited to 35, so don’t miss out!
CONCERT 1 on FRIDAY 20 NOV features the incredible world renowned classical guitarist Karin Schaupp. Karin will begin the evening with guitar solos from Europe and Australia. Joined in the second half by Trish Dean, the pair will take listeners on a sensual journey through South America.
CONCERT 2 on SATURDAY 21 NOV features Trish and Paul Dean in an exploration of Bach’s Two Part Inventions and some specially commissioned modern counterparts. Paul Dean will set the scene with a fantastic performance of Stravinsky’s 3 Pieces for solo clarinet, and our extraordinary violinist Natsuko Yoshimoto will join Trish for the Kodaly Duo.
CONCERT 3 on SUNDAY 22 NOV is going to be so much fun! The incredible Jason Barry-Smith joins Ensemble Q while we take you on a trip to Austria to hear Webern’s heartbreaking Langsammer Satz for string quartet, the Mozart clarinet quintet (did we say bliss?) and some brilliant selections of Mozart operatic arias with Jason. Featuring Natsuko Yoshimoto, Imants Larsens, Paul Dean, Trish Dean, and Jason Barry-Smith.
