MUSIC – Lurline Chamber Orchestra: Soulful & Brilliant

August 4, 2010toAugust 8, 2010


  • Programme runs 4 – 8 August 2010
  • Various locations (see below)

Lurline is thrilled to present to you the Australian premiere of two Rachmaninov Piano Preludes brilliantly arranged by Lee Armstrong. Then follows one of 34 String quintets by George Onslow, who was well respected by his contemporaries, Beethoven and Schubert, but faded mysteriously into obscurity. Two deep and prayerful works for viola and strings will feature Lurline co-founder Angela Lindsay, Trauermusik by Hindemith – a well loved work in the viola repertoire, plus a work less known in Australia, John Woolrich’s Ulysses Awakes. Closing the programme we will play the all-encompassing and consuming Variations on a Theme of Frank Bridge. Written by Bridge’s pupil, Benjamin Britten, it offers all the great things about strings!
