Acclaimed worldwide for her unparalleled command of a famously tricky instrument, Sydney oboist Diana Doherty makes a rare national tour in 2021. Diana’s delicious, eyes-alight style of performance finds a joyous match with her friends, the Streeton Trio, performing with Diana and alone in masterpieces of the repertory.
Chamber music for oboe quartet is relatively rare, so this is a unique opportunity to experience this appealing combination in two works. The first is by Martinů, a genial, airy piece, deceptively well-crafted, hinting at his habit of composing while out for a walk. The second is a world premiere by Western Australia’s Lachlan Skipworth, described by The Australian as possessing a ‘rare gift as a melodist’. His new Oboe Quartet is a musical portrait of the couple in whose memory it was commissioned. It reflects their shared love of Bach, their hobbies, and characters, in its vibrant colours, interlaced lines and lively textures. Anne and Alan Blanckensee are part of Musica Viva’s history and it is a joy to bring this work to the stage.
