Musicians of the Gewandhaus Orchestra

August 4, 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

A showcase of unmissable musicianship at its finest.

These select musicians from the Gewandaus Orchestra bring with them an unmissable musicianship and carry a tradition unlike any other. The Gewandhaus Orchestra Leipzig is the world’s oldest orchestra, and this performance is the ultimate opportunity to witness some of Germany’s most in-demand musicians presenting an intimate performance of, and inspired by, Schubert’s Octet in F.

About the concert

An exploration of a more intimate form of music-making, Schubert’s Octet with its warm yet heartfelt moments, was written at a time in the composer’s life when writing songs and symphonies was on hiatus. The result is a six-movement masterpiece that elegantly and carefully represents a cross-section of the symphony orchestra.

Opening the concert, and with inspiration from the Octet, is Danish composer Hans Abrahamsen’s arrangement of Schubert’s Six Moments Musicaux – originally written for solo piano, but in an arrangement especially commissioned for this Australian tour.

Friday 4 August 2023 7.30pm; Elisabeth Murdoch Hall; Duration: 2 hours (incl. interval)
