Welcome<br />

Welcome to <strong>Season</strong> <strong>2023</strong><br />

Our <strong>2023</strong> season is an invitation to experience<br />

chamber music with new eyes and ears.<br />

<strong>Musica</strong> <strong>Viva</strong> <strong>Australia</strong> will always be home<br />

to the world’s greatest musicians, performing<br />

repertory from the last 500 years or so. Yet<br />

in any season we will also ask our audiences<br />

and performers a simple question: what does<br />

chamber music mean to us all today?<br />

At a long lunch with old friends some years<br />

ago the conversation turned to the fate of<br />

great and humble instruments following<br />

the German invasion and occupation of<br />

European countries in the Second World<br />

War. Later, when researching the subject for<br />

a book, I became preoccupied with one such<br />

instrument, the small piano on which Chopin<br />

completed his 24 Preludes in the grim winter<br />

of 1838–9. In 2021 the director/writer Richard<br />

Pyros and I fashioned that narrative into a<br />

theatrical work with Chopin’s Preludes at its<br />

heart. The production is a virtuosic two-hander,<br />

with actor Jennifer Vuletic taking on multiple<br />

roles alongside Aura Go, whose performance<br />

of the Preludes makes this tour such a<br />

captivating prospect.<br />

The flutist Adam Walker, who was such a hit at<br />

the <strong>Musica</strong> <strong>Viva</strong> Festival in 2019, returns with two<br />

of his friends, Anneleen Lenaerts, solo harpist of<br />

the Vienna Philharmonic, and Timothy Ridout,<br />

the outstanding viola player of his generation.<br />

They’ll perform the Debussy trio – how could<br />

they not? – as part of a riveting selection of<br />

ensemble and solo works. These three musicians<br />

form a lovely counterpoint to the Vision String<br />

Quartet, a crack ensemble from Berlin that<br />

performs from memory, offering a deeper,<br />

more immersive experience for audiences.<br />

Living composers remain centre stage.<br />

Carl Vine has written a guitar quintet for<br />

Karin Schaupp and the Flinders Quartet.<br />

May Lyon is composing for the exquisite<br />

soloists Noa Wildschut and Elisabeth Brauss.<br />

Jakub Jankowski is crafting a new work for<br />

Jean-Guihen Queyras, Satsuki Odamura<br />

and James Morley – a trio for two cellos and<br />

koto – while Thomas Misson is writing for the<br />

great Garrick Ohlsson. It is a bumper crop,<br />

all supported by patrons whose generosity<br />

makes possible this exciting new season.<br />

Our morning series, <strong>Viva</strong> Edge and Morning<br />

Masters, provide platforms for the best<br />

<strong>Australia</strong>n musicians in repertory old and new.<br />

The new includes Manduway Dutton’s work for<br />

the Penny Quartet, Julia Potter’s composition<br />

for Claire Edwardes, and Sam Wu’s piece<br />

for Arcadia Winds, the third iteration of our<br />

FutureMakers to appear on our stages this year.<br />

It is a season alive with joy – not least<br />

because once more we will welcome local<br />

and international ensembles as participants<br />

in the Melbourne International Chamber<br />

Music Competition, an opportunity for us all to<br />

celebrate the next generation of outstanding<br />

musicians. It will be a pleasure to welcome you<br />

back into concert halls throughout the country.<br />

The Cage Project<br />

Cédric Tiberghien &<br />

Matthias Schack-Arnott<br />

<strong>Australia</strong>n percussionist, composer and sound<br />

artist Matthias Schack-Arnott collaborates<br />

with acclaimed pianist Cédric Tiberghien on<br />

John Cage’s magnum opus, his Sonatas and<br />

Interludes of 1948. Schack-Arnott is known<br />

for his unique approach to sound: he creates<br />

expansive sculptural musical worlds that are<br />

beautifully lit and dramatically staged. Here<br />

he brings his distinct voice to John Cage’s<br />

classic work for prepared piano, augmenting<br />

it with a massive kinetic sound sculpture that<br />

floats above the piano and rings and chimes<br />

in synchronicity. A pioneer in the development<br />

of percussion, Cage initiated the prepared<br />

piano as a means of giving the instrument a<br />

greater percussive quality. More than 70 years<br />

after its composition, the work is reimagined<br />

as a three-dimensional sculptural world, with<br />

Tiberghien’s exquisite playing at its heart.<br />

Premiering at Perth Festival, The Cage Project will be the<br />

first concert in our Perth subscription season and is only<br />

available as part of a Gold subscription.<br />

Single tickets for Perth are on sale through Perth Festival.<br />

All tickets for Adelaide are on sale through Adelaide<br />

Karin Schaupp<br />

& Flinders Quartet<br />

Music sparks emotion like nothing else; live music<br />

especially so. Here’s a concert with all the feelings:<br />

there’s loss, longing, love, and a bit of foot-stomping<br />

fandango flamboyance. Our guides into this other<br />

world are experts. The Flinders Quartet is renowned<br />

for unpretentious brilliance, with two decades of<br />

experience in old music and new. Classical guitar is<br />

a beautiful but famously difficult instrument to master,<br />

and most players sit very still in utmost concentration –<br />

which is why Karin Schaupp stands out. With incredible<br />

warmth and expressiveness, she welcomes us into<br />

her emotional world, and we leave enriched and<br />

heartened. Of special note in this program is a world<br />

premiere from composer and <strong>Musica</strong> <strong>Viva</strong> <strong>Australia</strong>’s<br />

previous Artistic Director Carl Vine, commissioned by<br />

a longstanding audience member to immortalise the<br />

joyous memory of her late daughter.<br />

Among the Birds<br />

and the Trees<br />

Sometimes a concert can be like a walk through a<br />

beautiful garden, with gorgeous blooms, intriguingly<br />

patterned ferns, and now and then a dramatic grass<br />

tree shooting skywards. The rather unusual line-up<br />

of instruments for this program offers just such an<br />

experience for the listener: a world of glowing sounds,<br />

with something entrancing around every corner of a<br />

gently twisting path.<br />

Creating this world are three of classical music’s<br />

acknowledged leaders. Adam Walker was appointed<br />

Principal Flute of the London Symphony Orchestra at 21;<br />

Anneleen Lenaerts became Solo Harp of the Vienna<br />

Philharmonic at 23; Timothy Ridout, youngest of the<br />

three, is that rare creature: a solo violist.<br />

This particularly mellow combination of instruments<br />

was the brainchild of Debussy, featuring in one of his<br />

very last pieces, the cornerstone of this concert. Planted<br />

around it are the meditative beauty of Takemitsu, the<br />

intensity of Soviet-era Gubaidulina, the joyous vigour<br />

of George Benjamin, and a choice selection of other<br />

musical blooms.<br />

‘His performance was a marvel<br />

passages with apparent ease’<br />

New York Review of Books<br />

Program 1<br />

Garrick<br />

Ohlsson<br />

In 1970 Garrick Ohlsson – a gangly pianist from<br />

White Plains, New York, all of 22 and unknown<br />

beyond his hometown – pulled off an astonishing<br />

feat: from nowhere he won the Chopin Competition<br />

in Warsaw, the only American to have done so.<br />

He somehow missed the announcement, a kindly<br />

audience member informing him that his life would<br />

never be quite the same.<br />

In the subsequent 50 years Ohlsson has owned<br />

Chopin’s music like few others, playing it with authority,<br />

humility, a sense of discovery and deep commitment.<br />

Ohlsson has other heroes too. Scriabin is one such<br />

example, his powerful, impressionistic music an ideal<br />

match for Ohlsson’s authoritative playing. He adores<br />

Barber and Schubert, Debussy and Liszt too, choosing<br />

this <strong>Australia</strong>n tour for his first performance of the<br />

latter’s Sonata in B Minor in many years. His program<br />

also features a new work by the <strong>Australia</strong>n composer<br />

Thomas Misson.<br />

‘Vuletic is mesmerising, compelling,<br />

<strong>Australia</strong>n Stage<br />

Chopin’s Piano<br />

Can a single instrument unlock the DNA of<br />

Romantic music? A small, craftsman’s pianino,<br />

built in Majorca in the 1830s, gives it a good try:<br />

it’s the keyboard on which Chopin completed<br />

his Preludes. This exquisite collection reclaimed<br />

an intimacy that had been drowned out by the<br />

excesses of Chopin’s brilliant peers. It would take<br />

50 years, but these miniatures would eventually<br />

outflank and outrank many of the century’s<br />

hulking musical monuments.<br />

If this were not enough, Chopin’s piano took on<br />

talismanic qualities in the following century.<br />

The cast of characters obsessed with its<br />

provenance, heritage and symbolism – from<br />

harpsichordist Wanda Landowska to Nazi<br />

propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels –<br />

completes this miraculous story.<br />

In this captivating staging by Richard Pyros –<br />

first filmed and streamed in 2021 – and with the<br />

complete Preludes as its backbone, pianist Aura<br />

Go and actor Jennifer Vuletic tell the story of this<br />

singular instrument, the works composed on it and<br />

the artist who created them, and the changing<br />

value of music over time.<br />

Photography: above, Artūrs Kondrāts; below, Weedon<br />

Silk, Metal, Wood<br />

This program started with an invitation to the fascinating<br />

French cellist Jean-Guihen Queyras – a human vessel<br />

of his instrument’s soulful beauty, and a musician<br />

known for his sense of artistic adventure. He leapt<br />

at the chance to work with one of <strong>Australia</strong>’s musical<br />

treasures: Satsuki Odamura, a grand master of the koto<br />

– a plucked Japanese zither – resident in Sydney for<br />

more than 30 years. They welcomed one of Adelaide’s<br />

young stars, cellist James Morley, into the mix – a trio<br />

of passionate musicians inspired by the love of their<br />

instruments and an endless delighted curiosity for<br />

finding new sounds to play.<br />

Such a gorgeous palette of colours and textures is<br />

inspiration for <strong>Australia</strong>n composer Jakub Jankowski, who<br />

will create a brand-new trio for them, nestled amongst<br />

solo suites by Bach and Britten, traditional and modern<br />

works for koto, and a gleeful duo from Offenbach.<br />

Chicago Classical Review<br />

Vision String Quartet<br />

The conductor Jeffrey Tate once described the string<br />

quartet as ‘the most perfect expression of human<br />

behaviour’. Composers from Haydn to Adès have<br />

revelled in this most intimate and virtuosic of musical<br />

forms, awed by the sight of four musicians moving<br />

across a tightrope at speed.<br />

The four young musicians that make up the Vision String<br />

Quartet add one extra element to this dextrous feat:<br />

they perform everything from memory. Repertory that<br />

might be familiar – Bartók’s astonishing Quartet No. 4,<br />

say, or Dvořák’s Quartet No. 13 – is utterly transformed.<br />

This prizewinning Berlin-based quartet – praised<br />

as ‘amazingly vivacious, vivid and electrifying …<br />

completely fearless’ by Der Tagesspiegel – has<br />

gathered fans aplenty across Europe since forming in<br />

2012, and here makes its thrilling <strong>Australia</strong>n debut.<br />

Not one new discovery, but two! Hiding in plain sight<br />

in the great halls of Europe, violinist Noa Wildschut<br />

and pianist Elisabeth Brauss make one of the most<br />

exciting musical partnerships heard in years, and<br />

<strong>Musica</strong> <strong>Viva</strong> <strong>Australia</strong> is thrilled to present their first<br />

<strong>Australia</strong>n concerts.<br />

Violin and piano is a classic combination, capable of<br />

both great intimacy and intensity – no wonder audiences<br />

and composers have loved it so much over the last two<br />

centuries (and counting). Melbourne’s May Lyon throws<br />

her hat in the ring with a new work for the duo, adding a<br />

fresh voice to this grand repertoire. Noa and Elisabeth’s<br />

musicality lights up the stage the way a meteor can<br />

spark through the night – a magical experience to be<br />

treasured forever.<br />

Sam Wu<br />

Thomas Misson<br />

Thomas Misson is a<br />

musician from Hobart who<br />

has recently studied with<br />

Elliott Gyger, Ken Thomson,<br />

and Yannis Kyriakides.<br />

Thomas’ compositions are<br />

inspired by the extremes of<br />

the human condition and its<br />

omnipresent imperfections.<br />

His music often aims to<br />

reimagine familiar musical<br />

constructs in ways that are<br />

surreal, blackly humorous,<br />

tender, and lyrical.<br />

Thomas has a passion for<br />

expanding and enriching<br />

others’ relationships with<br />

music through the disciplines<br />

of teaching, YouTubing,<br />

and music journalism. He<br />

is an experienced pianist<br />

who performs in a variety<br />

of contexts, genres, and<br />

capacities such as recitalist,<br />

concerto soloist, jazz pianist,<br />

and collaborative pianist.<br />

Thomas’ new work will<br />

be premiered by Garrick<br />

Ohlsson on his national<br />

tour. It was commissioned<br />

for <strong>Musica</strong> <strong>Viva</strong> <strong>Australia</strong><br />

by Stephen Johns for his<br />

wife, Michele.<br />

Julia Potter<br />

Julia Potter is a Sydneybased<br />

screen and art<br />

music composer. She seeks<br />

to create music which<br />

transports the listener to<br />

a suspended reality and<br />

moment in time.<br />

In 2021 Julia participated<br />

in the Ensemble Offspring<br />

Hatched Academy and in<br />

2022 was accepted into<br />

the Melbourne Symphony<br />

Orchestra Cybec and<br />

Omega Ensemble CoLAB<br />

Programs for young<br />

composers. Her work<br />

has been performed by<br />

ensembles including the<br />

Penny Quartet, Syzygy<br />

Ensemble, <strong>Australia</strong>n Youth<br />

Orchestra, and Melbourne<br />

University Symphony<br />

Orchestra. Her music for<br />

the documentary Acts for<br />

the Invisible was featured<br />

at Sydney Film Festival,<br />

St Kilda Film Festival, and<br />

Mardi Gras Film Festival.<br />

In 2019 Julia was the<br />

recipient of the Melbourne<br />

Recital Centre/Melbourne<br />

Conservatorium of Music<br />

graduate commission.<br />

Julia’s new work will be<br />

premiered by Claire<br />

Edwardes for Sydney<br />

Morning Masters.<br />

Carl Vine<br />

Carl Vine AO is one of<br />

<strong>Australia</strong>’s best known<br />

and most often performed<br />

composers, with a<br />

catalogue now including<br />

eight symphonies,<br />

13 concertos, music for<br />

film, television, dance and<br />

theatre, electronic music<br />

and numerous chamber<br />

works.<br />

From 2000 until 2019 Carl<br />

was Artistic Director of<br />

<strong>Musica</strong> <strong>Viva</strong> <strong>Australia</strong>.<br />

His recent compositions<br />

include Piano Sonata<br />

No. 4, The Enchanted Loom<br />

(Symphony No. 8) for the<br />

Melbourne Symphony<br />

<strong>Australia</strong>n and Tasmanian<br />

Symphony Orchestras,<br />

and Five Hallucinations,<br />

a trombone concerto for<br />

the Chicago and Sydney<br />

Symphony Orchestras.<br />

Commissioned for <strong>Musica</strong><br />

<strong>Viva</strong> <strong>Australia</strong> in loving<br />

memory of Jennifer<br />

Bates, Carl’s work for<br />

guitar and string quartet,<br />

Endless, will be premiered<br />

by Karin Schaupp and<br />

Flinders Quartet on their<br />

national tour.<br />

Sam Wu’s music deals<br />

with the beauty in blurred<br />

boundaries. Many of his<br />

works centre on extramusical<br />

themes: architecture<br />

and urban planning,<br />

climate science, and the<br />

search for exoplanets that<br />

harbour life.<br />

From Melbourne, Sam<br />

holds degrees from<br />

Harvard University and<br />

The Juilliard School and<br />

is pursuing his DMA in<br />

accolades include<br />

Juilliard’s Palmer Dixon<br />

Prize, Harvard’s Robert<br />

Levin Prize, and First<br />

Prize in the Washington<br />

International Competition.<br />

Sam’s collaborations span<br />

five continents, most notably<br />

with New York City Ballet,<br />

The Kennedy Center and<br />

Beijing’s National Center for<br />

the Performing Arts.<br />

Sam’s new work will be<br />

premiered by Arcadia<br />

Winds for <strong>Viva</strong> Edge. It<br />

was commissioned by<br />

Carrillo Gantner AC and<br />

Ziyin Gantner to honour<br />

all the doctors, nurses and<br />

other health workers who<br />

committed themselves<br />

with such courage and<br />

selflessness to save lives<br />

in hospital Intensive Care<br />

Units during the pandemic<br />

of 2020/21.<br />

Encounters with the sublime.<br />

That’s what Sydney Morning Masters, our<br />

daytime series of live concerts at The Concourse,<br />

offers audiences. A showcase for exceptional<br />

music-making, our concerts provide joy,<br />

inspiration, and respite from the outside world.<br />

Experience a rarely heard pairing of instruments when<br />

guitarist Simon Powis and violinist Anna Da Silva Chen<br />

present musical snapshots from across the globe. Romanian<br />

folk dances, Spanish melodies infused with North African<br />

influences, and Argentine tangos share a program with<br />

works by JS Bach and Robert Beaser.<br />

Castalia Vocal Consort are a new Sydney vocal ensemble,<br />

passionate about the expressive possibilities of a cappella<br />

singing. These extraordinary ensemble singers will present<br />

madrigals from Monteverdi to exquisite contemporary<br />

pieces in Hotheads and Lovers, an earthy, sumptuous, and<br />

often provocative selection of music.<br />

In a rare recital appearance, pianist Tonya Lemoh offers<br />

works inspired by a line from a poem by TS Eliot: ‘the<br />

stillness, the dancing’. Soulful, profound works – like<br />

Haydn’s final piece for solo keyboard, or Liszt’s tone<br />

poem about the Romantic hero Obermann – are paired<br />

with life-affirming dances that make the blood sing.<br />

A recent addition to Sydney’s chamber music scene, the<br />

Chroma String Quartet are sure to become favourites in<br />

no time given the polish and panache of their playing.<br />

They’ll put their stamp on Ravel’s masterly String Quartet<br />

in F Major, garlanded by music from Britten and Sdraulig.<br />

Claire Edwardes dishes up a feast for the senses in her<br />

colourful and entrancing percussion recital. Mallets twirl<br />

and cymbals splash as she tackles giants like Bach and<br />

Stockhausen alongside an impressive range of spectacular<br />

<strong>Australia</strong>n works.<br />

Sydney Morning Masters is generously supported by the<br />

Melbourne’s <strong>Viva</strong> Edge is a bold, imaginatively<br />

curated daytime concert series every bit as<br />

unique as the space it inhabits at Fed Square.<br />

You’ll discover brilliant new works and musicians,<br />

hear favourites of the chamber repertoire as if<br />

for the first time, and witness how virtuosity and<br />

intimacy can exist hand in hand.<br />

That latter quality is embodied by the Consort of<br />

Melbourne, who are joined by viola player Aaron Wyatt<br />

in an unusual and intriguing combination of musical<br />

forces. Experience surpassingly beautiful choral works<br />

encompassing themes of loss, nostalgia, and joy, many<br />

of them by <strong>Australia</strong>n composers.<br />

Ensemble Liaison are local favourites, beloved for their<br />

technical brilliance and the palpable joy they emit<br />

onstage. Those qualities will be on ample display in their<br />

appearance for <strong>Viva</strong> Edge, highlights of which include<br />

Weber’s demanding showcase for clarinet and piano and<br />

Schumann’s impossibly tender Adagio and Allegro.<br />

Internationally renowned violinist Rachael Beesley brings<br />

together a who’s who of Melbourne’s early music specialists<br />

for a program entitled Autumnal Tone. Featured composers<br />

include Bach, Couperin, Leclair, and Telemann, their works<br />

united by a sense of the valedictory.<br />

Masterpieces by Bartók and Haydn bookend the Penny<br />

Quartet’s <strong>Viva</strong> Edge offering, providing a study in contrasts.<br />

Where Bartók’s Fourth String Quartet has a muscular, driving<br />

power, Haydn’s String Quartet in F Major is a diaphanous<br />

beauty, akin to a serenade. Both are unforgettable,<br />

especially when played by such vibrant musicians.<br />

The trailblazing Arcadia Winds offer up an eclectic<br />

program and a moment of reflection when they give<br />

the world premiere of a work by <strong>Australia</strong>n composer<br />

Sam Wu, inspired by the extraordinary efforts of ICU<br />

workers during the pandemic.<br />

Support <strong>Musica</strong> <strong>Viva</strong> <strong>Australia</strong><br />

What makes <strong>Musica</strong> <strong>Viva</strong> <strong>Australia</strong> different? Is it our<br />

nearly 80 years’ experience of presenting the finest<br />

musicians from <strong>Australia</strong> and around the world? Is it the<br />

way we’ve sought for decades to ignite that spark of<br />

creativity in our youngest audiences? Or perhaps it’s our<br />

commitment to nurturing the artists of the future?<br />

It’s thanks to our donors and partners that we are able to<br />

do and be all these things – and more.<br />

And if you’re not part of our donor family – yet – we invite<br />

you to join us.<br />

A donation to <strong>Musica</strong> <strong>Viva</strong> <strong>Australia</strong> will ensure we can<br />

continue to present the finest artists, support the next<br />

generation of talent, and provide world-leading, national<br />

education programs to students of all ages, from all<br />

backgrounds and in all states and territories.<br />

Creating, producing, and presenting great art takes<br />

courage and vision. It also takes the vision – and<br />

generosity – of our donors and partners, without whom<br />

none of our programs would exist. If you would like to help<br />

bring our work to life, we would love to hear from you.<br />

Your gift will make a difference.<br />
