Pictorially, the resulting paintings seemed to occupy a space between the visceral intensity of Willem de Kooning’s gestural painting and the cooler sensibility of Brice Marden’s looping layered lines.- Sebastian Smee, Pulitzer Prize-winning arts critic for the Boston Globe, Distillation catalogue 2015

Three Piece Suite, Magic Mozart, with James Fortune (flute) The magic flute exerpts Flute Quartedt in A Magor (K298) Divertimento K. 563 - Dates and location of concertsThree Piece Suite: Magic Mozart Concert

At last the wait is nearly over! We will soon be returning to a venue near you to present our second series for 2017 - Magic Mozart

Of course, the Divertimento K. 563 for string trio, the first really important work for our combination, will be on the program and we are pleased that our friend and colleague James Fortune will be joining us for another one of Mozart's flute quartets. This time he has chosen the Quartet in A major K. 298, an appropriately sunny and light-hearted piece for the season. As well we have found an arrangement of nearly all of the Magic Flute, for flute and strings, made by Mozart's contemporary Franz Heinrich Ehrenfried. Unfortunately time will limit how much of that we can play, but we are in negotiations for all of our favourites!

The Village Church, cnr. Booth/Johnston Sts
Sunday 22nd October at 3pm
Online bookings will be open approximately 2-3 weeks before each concert, More information here
