Mustonen and Brahms



Pianist Kristian Chong is one of Australia’s most sought-after musicians.

Partnering with his friends, who are some of the best international and Australian music stars, Kristian’s concerts have become treasured occasions to hear chamber music masterpieces performed by artists at the heights of their careers.

Astounding Australian violinist Daniel Dodds is the concertmaster and artistic director of renowned chamber orchestra Festival Strings Lucerne, concertmaster of the Australian World Orchestra and is simply a brilliant musician. He joins celebrated pianist Kristian Chong to present a powerful work by pianist-composer Olli Mustonen, his Sonata for Violin & Piano (2012) and Brahms’s dramatic Sonata for Violin & Piano No.3. This is chamber music not to be missed, featuring two renowned and outstanding performers.
