Baritone David Greco joins the Australian Haydn Ensemble under the artistic direction of Skye McIntosh for a magical program of Schubert’s lieder interwoven with his chamber music.
Schubert’s lieder are powerful yet sublime. The AHE brings you a carefully curated selection of his most-loved songs in newly commissioned chamber arrangements for string quintet and baritone, interspersed with a selection of soiree movements from French composer Felicien David’s Les Quatre Seasons, a series of moving yet barely known pieces for string quintet with double bass.
David Greco, one of Australia’s finest baritones, has performed throughout Europe with cutting-edge early music ensembles including Freiburg Barokorchester, Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, The Academy of Ancient Music and Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra.
Audiences will also have a rare opportunity to hear movements from Schubert’s String Quartet No 13 in A minor, The Rosamunde performed on period instruments.
