Experience virtuosity with Latitude 37, Biber, followed by Schoenberg.
The title concert of the 2024 Marathon begins with an abundance of baroque virtuosity from the extraordinary musicians of Latitude 37 who have crafted a set that pays homage to transfiguration in several different ways.
Then travel forward more than 200 years to Schoenberg’s deep, uplifting masterpiece, Transfigured Night – the pinnacle of late Romanticism performed by a specially assembled string sextet of Australia’s finest, including three members of the Partridge Quartet and led by charismatic violinist, Zoë Black.
