About the event

Another two years has passed and it is again time for the walls of the Sydney Conservatorium to pulse with that powerful distillation of chamber music that is the Musica Viva Festival.

If you enjoy chamber music as much as we do, then you should set aside the week after Easter for self-indulgence. If you’re still not sure, but have ever wondered about the insane dedication of its aficionados, this is the place to find out what makes the intimacy and concentration of the best chamber performances an unmissable thrill and an affirmation of life itself. 

Festival Concerts:

Opening Night
Opening Night of the Festival offers a personal introduction to many of this year’s international artists: an opportunity to get to know them through music they love.
Featuring: Edgar Meyer, Andrew Tyson, Tessa Lark, Dover Quartet

Connections
The Festival is a wonderful opportunity for artists to meet and work with new colleagues in great chamber repertoire, and Concert 2 highlights these connections.
Featuring: Konstantin Shamray, Aura Go, Tessa Lark, Adam Walker, Andrew Tyson, Goldner String Quartet

Resonance
Saturday afternoon presents three great classics and an appealing new work, with abundant variety across the whole concert to tantalise.
Featuring: Adam Walker, Aura Go, Goldner String Quartet, Andrew Tyson, Dimity Hall, Julian Smiles, Dover Quartet, Edgar Meyer

Essence
Mozart’s Flute Quartet, which opens the concert, was written as the purest of chamber music, to be performed at home with friends. This was almost certainly the same setting for Schubert’s justly famous ‘Trout’ Quintet, which closes the evening.
Featuring: Adam Walker, Goldner String Quartet, Tessa Lark, Timo-Veikko Valve, Andrew Tyson, Dover Quartet, Edgar Meyer

Scenes
Be transported to scenes of extraordinary beauty and colour as the finely-wrought music of Dvořák and JS Bach meet with one of France’s finest living composers, Thierry Escaich, and the bluegrass-inflected Concert Duo of Edgar Meyer.
Featuring: Tessa Lark, Konstantin Shamray, Timo-Veikko Valve, Adam Walker, Aura Go, Edgar Meyer, Camden Shaw

Finale
The Festival’s final concert finishes in style as an opportunity to farewell the musicians we’ve come to admire over the previous four days.
Featuring: Adam Walker, Andrew Tyson, Goldner String Quartet, Dover Quartet, Aura Go, Edgar Meyer
