The CSO Chamber Ensemble returns to Tuggeranong Arts Centre with an uplifting program for violin, cello and piano. The concert opens with a well-loved Passacaglia, attributed to both Handel and Halvorsen. The term passacaglia originally described an energetic Spanish street dance; this virtuosic work for violin and cello moves through a number of inventive variations on the core theme.
Pianist Edward Neeman then joins Kirsten Williams and Patrick Suthers for Dvorak’s stirring Second Piano Trio. Arising from a painful season in the composer’s life, this powerful piece of music plumbs great emotional depths. It’s also a work of striking contrasts, opening with a bold Allegro before moving through a sombre largo movement and back to a dancing scherzo. The fourth and final movement is elegantly crafted, exultant and ultimately uplifting.
Bar open from 5pm, with the concert running from 6pm to approximately 7pm.
In collaboration with the Tuggeranong Arts Centre
