The Australian Haydn Ensemble directed by Skye McIntosh with special guest artist soprano Sara Macliver launch into 2016 with Beautiful Boccherini, a programme of music by Mozart and Boccherini constructed around Boccherini’s exquisite and rarely heard Stabat Mater.
Aria award-winning Sara Macliver is one of Australia’s favourite and acclaimed sopranos. She is an expert in baroque performance and her pure and elegant style perfectly suits the music of Mozart & Boccherini.
Enchanted by the Gredos Mountains of Spain, far from the traditional musical centres of Europe, Bocherini’s music in this programme is filled with optimism, colour and the warmth of Spanish folk music.
Mozart’s operas are amongst his most loved works. Sara will sing selections from The Magic Flute and Don Giovanni accompanied by a chamber ensemble of flute and strings.
MOZART, W.A: The Magic Flute – Overture (chamber arr.)/ Ach ich fuhl’s from The Magic Flute/ Batti batti and Vedrai carino from Don Giovanni (chamber arr.)
BOCCHERINI, L: Quintet in G minor Op. 19/ Stabat Mater G 532 for soprano and string quintet
