The Brissenden Foundation is presenting a twilight concert of popular chamber works performed by Suzuki students and professional musicians, to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the death of Harold Brissenden OAM, founder of Suzuki teaching in Australia and himself, a keen, experienced chamber musician.
Chamber music provides one of the greatest sources of pleasure to musicians, whether professional or amateur. Chamber music is simply music that is suitable for performance in a room, rather than a large concert hall. It is usually written for two to eight players, with one player to each part. While it is mostly written for instrumentalists, it can often include vocal parts.
The world's greatest composers have provided us with a wealth of wonderful chamber works: the world's greatest concert artists enjoy performing these masterpieces. Chamber music also provides a great source of pleasure for all involved, be they perfomers or listeners.
The program on March 21 includes highlights of chamber music repertoire. The performers include outstanding young Suzuki students and our professional alumni. We are especially grateful to the Caro String Quartet and to the internationally famous operatic soprano Cherryl Barker for their support.
The concert is in support of the Brissenden Foundation and St Andrew's Cathedral Music Foundation.
