Event Details

An exciting element of this year’s Governor’s Gala concert is the world premiere of the third Lorca song by our Composer-in-Residence Paul Stanhope. To have one of the UK’s foremost baritones with us to sing glorious and colourful Ravel is another coup! And of course, Mendelssohn’s evergreen Octet, composed, extraordinarily when he was still sixteen, is one of the jewels in the chamber music crown.

Chansons madécasses
Roderick Williams (baritone), Bridget Bolliger (flute), Trey Lee (cello), Andrew West (piano)

Three Lorca Songs
Valda Wilson (soprano), Indira Koch (violin), Wolfgang-Emanuel Schmidt (cello), Timothy Young (piano)

A short recital by the winner of the Sydney International Piano Competition


Octet in E flat major Op 20
Goldner String Quartet, Tinalley String Quartet

Featured non-Australian music: Ravel, Mendelssohn
