On Sunday 29th April, Riverside Theatres presents a relaxing afternoon mix of cider and chamber music when the Sydney Symphony Orchestra (SSO) Fellows takes to the stage for Intimate Voices.
Under the Artistic Direction of Roger Benedict, Intimate Voices will explore the intimate, conversational nature of chamber music, inspired by Sibelius' string quartet masterpiece.
In a program that highlights the superb skill, subtlety and passion of the country's brightest young musicians, the concert will feature 12 of the 2018 SSO Fellows on strings, winds, brass and percussion.
The program will include Nielsen's beloved Wind Quintet in three movements; Andre Jolivet's virtuosic trumpet and percussion piece Heptade; two works by Arvo Pärt - his moving and masterful Pari Intervallo for clarinet, trombone and strings, and a hauntingly beautiful interpretation of Psalm 137 for trombone and chamber orchestra; and Sibelius' Intimate Voices, played by string quartet.
Prior to the performance, ticket holders can enjoy a cider tasting hosted by Blue Mountains supplier Hillbilly Cider. Each ticket purchased will include a free cider from the range - alcoholic and non-alcoholic options available.
