About The Festival
Welcome to the third Tasmanian Chamber Music Festival. I am thrilled to be able to introduce you to more of Northern Tasmania. The Festival returns to the exquisite Georgian village of Evandale and then moves through glorious countryside to Longford and Hagley. Another stop at the remarkable World heritage listed Brickendon Estate for the final gala concert will be a real highlight, as will lunch with the musicians overlooking the lake at Josef Chromy Vineyard.
Musically, there are well-known chamber works by Beethoven, Mozart, Bach, Schubert and Brahms and more. The young award-winning Orava Quartet will, I am sure, dazzle on opening night with the captivating Greta Bradman. By popular demand, we welcome back cellist Umberto Clerici in solo recital and with versatile pianist, Daniel de Borah. Daniel will also accompany Greta and play two wonderful Schubert Impromptus in our final Gala concert.
A big thank you to Hugh and Anne MacKinnon who have very kindly allowed us to use the Ballroom in their home at Mountford, and to Peter and Claire Blackwood who are giving us their barn at Harland Rise for our Mozart ‘merry-go-round’ concerts. These concerts in such special venues will be a real treat.
To our generous patrons and sponsors and all those who have encouraged and embraced the Festival, thank you.
