Details

Two extraordinary principal’s, playing violin and viola make their duo debut in music by Mozart, Martinů and an Australian world premiere.

Sophie Rowell and Christopher Moore have each toured nationally for Musica Viva in different ensembles, but this concert brings these Melbourne Symphony Orchestra principals together for the first time as a chamber duo.

If the string quartet is a conversation among equals, then the duo of violin and viola is an engrossing tête-à-tête. Mozart’s faculty for melody shines in his joyous G major duo, where Baroque-like craftsmanship meets Classical flair. Martinů’s Three Madrigals were composed for the virtuoso siblings Joseph and Lillian Fuchs and are wonderfully rich in texture, employing the eight available strings to their fullest potential. A world premiere by Melbourne composer Stuart Greenbaum adds an Australian element to the repertoire for this most intimate of chamber music combinations.
