One of Australia's leading viola players takes to the stage with a programme of soulful romantic music.
The sonata for viola in Eb major by Brahms was composed just three years before the end of the composer's life, and contains beautiful melodies and a rich and warm sentimentality. Before that, the sonata by Belgian composer Henri Vieuxtemps is an enchanting work with a bubbling first movement, a lilting and song-like 'barcarolle' and a finale full of humour.
Ella Brinch is a hugely sought-after performer, particularly within Sydney's chamber music scene, following a number of years working as a leading orchestral musician in the UK. A player of great warmth and ability, we're looking forward to hearing her interpretations of these two challenging sonatas.
Resonance concerts are short performances of the highest quality, flavoured with the spice of informality and friendliness.
