Details

‘Vänskä’s technical assurance and pristine tone, her delivery of bounding, cascading and crunching flourishes a masterclass in technique.’ The Australian

To open our Great Performers Series in our 10th Anniversary year, we welcome one of Australia’s superstar musicians – violinist Satu Vänskä. Well known as a member of the acclaimed Australian Chamber Orchestra, Satu also has a glittering career as a solo artist, breaker of boundaries, maker of magic. In this eclectic and sublime program, you will see why she is a national treasure to rejoice in.

The multifaceted talent and exceptional technique of violinist Satu Vänskä have seen her singing with the likes of Barry Humphries, Brian Ritchie and Meow Meow, playing in underground clubs, and of course, being Principal Violin of the Australian Chamber Orchestra. Vänskä’s panache, versatility and insight is on display in the intricacies of Bach, Beethoven’s heroic A-major sonata, Ravel’s jazzily seductive sonata, the haunting soundscapes of Saariaho and the dynamism of Lutosławski. Ravel’s homage to the brilliance of ‘gypsy’ fiddling, Tzigane, is the ultimate showpiece for both Vänskä’s Stradivarius and her stylish virtuosity.
