Oboe player Diana Doherty will be joined by the Streeton Trio for eagerly anticipated Sydney concerts as part of a national tour for Musica Viva.
A rare opportunity to hear chamber music for oboe quartet, the program features this unique combination in two works: Quartet for Oboe, Violin, Cello and Piano, H. 315 by Martinů, and a brand-new commission by Perth-based composer Lachlan Skipworth.
Also on the programme, the Piano Trio No.1 in D minor, Op. 49 by Mendelssohn (Adelaide, Canberra, Melbourne weekday and Sydney weekday) and the Piano Trio in G minor, Op. 15 by Smetana (Brisbane, Newcastle, Perth, Melbourne weekend, Sydney weekend, and livestream).
Diana Doherty has been Principal Oboe for the Sydney Symphony Orchestra since 1997. One of the world’s best oboe players and an in-demand soloist, Diana has performed with the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra, Australian Symphony Orchestra, Melbourne and Christchurch Symphony Orchestras, and at the Australian Festival of Chamber Music.
Formed in 2008, the Streeton Trio is Australia’s most internationally successful piano trio comprised of Benjamin Kopp (piano), Emma Jardine (violin) and Umberto Clerici (cello). The trio has given highly acclaimed performances across around the world.
Lachlan Skipworth writes orchestral, chamber, vocal and experimental music with a rare combination of elegance and strength, Skipworth’s vivid musical language is coloured by three years spent in Japan studying the shakuhachi bamboo flute.
