Selby & Friends – Four-Part Harmony

Selby & Friends

Presented by Selby & Friends


The Selby & Friends 2022 Season makes its new home at the Melbourne Recital Centre’s Primrose Potter Salon for five glorious and intimate concerts between March to October with a select ensembles of artists counted amongst the best in the world.

About the concert

A thrilling program of beautiful piano quartets with four artists of extraordinary skill and warmth. Along with two Principals from the Sydney Symphony Orchestra in Concertmaster Andrew Haveron and Principal Viola Tobias Breider, Goldner Quartet cellist Julian Smiles joins pianist Kathryn Selby to open with the lyrical hymn-like work by well-known Australian composer Paul Stanhope.

The passionate world of Fauré’s great first piano quartet is a perennial favourite, and the program closes with the unending and delicious melodies by Dvořák in his last piano quartet. A rare treat for Selby & Friends and a program to truly savour.
