Joshua Bell joins The Academy Chamber Ensemble in an Australian Exclusive

The principal performers of the Academy of St Martin in the Fields are an acclaimed ensemble within an ensemble: the Academy Chamber Ensemble, established in 1967 to explore masterpieces of chamber music for strings and wind.

In the Ensemble’s exclusive Australian performance you’ll hear Mozart’s Divertimento in D for Strings and Mendelssohn’s String Octet in E-flat. Mendelssohn’s remarkable String Octet with its fine melodies and the gracious balance of its various parts proves Mendelssohn as a pioneer in producing a masterful work for the combination of two string quartets and the perfect centrepiece for a morning with the Academy.

Melbourne performances of the Academy supported by Yvonne von Hartel AM & Robert Peck AM of peckvonhartel architects.
