Duo Chamber Melange is an organic partnership between internationally acclaimed musicians Ivana Tomásková (violin) and Tamara Smolyar (piano). The Duo’s versatile repertoire embraces classical and contemporary music with recent world premieres of renowned Australian, American and European composers.
Duo Chamber Melange showcases the true art of music making. Its engaging performance style is an ideal match for the impassioned music of Russia and Armenia. Full of contrasts and rhythmic drive, this music brings emotions that cannot be put into words to the surface. At the concert’s heart is the Australian premiere of American-Russian composer Alla Pavlova’s work for the victims of the Armenian Holocaust. Together with classical Armenian masterpieces and Igor Stravinsky’s lyrical Duo Concertante, this concert offers tremendous expression and musical depth.
