Schubert revisited

Schubert’s lieder are powerful and sublime. The Ensemble brings you a stunning selection of his most-loved songs in newly commissioned chamber arrangements for string quintet and baritone, interwoven with a selection of Soiree movements from French composer Felicien David’s Les Quatre Seasons, a series of moving yet almost entirely unknown pieces for string quintet with double bass.

David Greco, one of Australia’s finest baritones, has performed throughout Europe with cutting-edge early music ensembles including Freiburg Barokorchester, Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, The Academy of Ancient Music, and Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra.

Audiences will also have a rare opportunity to hear movements from Schubert’s emotive String Quartet The Rosamunde performed on period instruments.

Presented by Australian Haydn Ensemble
