Selby & Friends

Presented by Selby & Friends

Details

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

This closing program for the 2022 Selby & Friends season is all about the strength of legacy and the tributes it brought forth from each composer.

The program begins with a piano work by Ravel, created as a tribute to the early French composer Couperin which was then arranged beautifully for piano trio by American composer Matt van Brink. Mendelssohn incorporates his own tributes to the legacy left by Bach in his fiery and passionate second piano trio and we end the season with Schumann’s glowing and soulful first piano trio with its inclusions of special personal significance for him of his wife, Clara Schumann.

Natsuko Yoshimoto and Richard Narroway are two stunning performers who will work together for the first time in this lustrous final program for the year with Artistic Director/Pianist, Kathryn Selby AM.
