Event details

Lauded for its world-class performances, Melbourne Chamber Players comprises musicians who have dedicated their lives to performing exceptional chamber music at the highest level. Directed by clarinettist Justin Beere and oboist Steph Dixon, the ensemble is committed to illuminating extraordinary and unique chamber music.

Melbourne Chamber Players breathes new energy and vigour into the extraordinary sounds of the musicians’ wind instruments. Nestle in the warmth and beauty of Schumann’s magical Waldszenen (Forest Scenes). Rest by an iridescent lake, caressed by the cool shimmer of the moon’s silvery glow, as Nico Muhly’s Look for Me sways in the reeds. Louise Farrenc’s remarkable Sextet for piano and winds elevates with virtuosic and melodic grandeur in a compelling performance by some of Australia’s finest woodwind instrumentalists.
