Kathryn Selby, AM presents A Final Offering, a spectacular performance with an elite ensemble of musical friends to round out her 2020 Season online, on demand, from Friday 6 November.
Sydney’s magnificent City Recital Hall is again the venue for this exciting, high-quality filmed-live concert, with special features. It replaces the planned live November subscription concerts around the country.
Recorded under strict health and safety protocols, the concert is approximately 75 minutes long and will be available to regular subscribers and the general public as a live-filmed online concert to music lovers around Australia and the world.
Joining Selby for this performance are her brilliant international ‘friends’ Susie Park (Violin: Concertmaster Minnesota Symphony Orchestra), Stefanie Farrands (Principal Viola ACO) and Timo-Veikko Valve (Principal Cello ACO), in a program of Schubert, Schumann and Shostakovich.
The concert takes its title from its composer’s final offering in the genre, and comprises Schubert’s iconic Notturno, Shostakovich’s Piano Trio in E minor, Opus 67 composed during the dying days of WWII; and Schumann’s Piano Quartet in E Flat Major, Op.47 composed as the final piece for a larger ensemble during his famous ‘Chamber Music Year of 1842’.
