Musica Viva Festival 2017 - Concert 5

Sunday 23 April 2017

Sydney Conservatorium of Music

1 Conservatorium Road, Sydney

Proudly supported by the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, experience four full days of the Musica Viva Festival.

This concert is a blissfully adventurous mix of musical styles. Sydney Conservatorium of Music Master of Music (Composition) student Elizabeth Younan brings an edgy spark with her remarkable work for Arcadia Winds, while her compatriot Martin Wesley-Smith is represented by two of his most celebrated works, in dynamic combinations of live and recorded sound. Straight from the French Jazz Age, Poulenc’s toe-tapping Sextet has a classical clarity that sits comfortably alongside Mozart’s mellow Horn Quintet and Beethoven’s gorgeous Cello Sonata.
