The Galston Concerts will present the Sydney Symphony Orchestra Fellows ensembles on Sunday 29 July, starting 2pm in Galston Uniting Church, 11 School Road, Galston.
The program combines professional players and young performers. The Fellows are leading talents of the next generation and are already playing professionally with the SSO, Australia’s flagship symphonic ensemble.
The concert showcases instruments not heard previously in the Galston series – oboe, clarinet, bassoon, French horn and percussion – plus flute, trumpet, trombone and strings combined as a mini-orchestra, the largest group yet for the Galston project.
In a clever program theme, they’ll perform music written by great composers when also in their twenties – a Serenade for strings and winds in Romantic style by Brahms from 1858, a quartet for oboe and strings from the Classical period by Mozart from 1781 plus a Suite by Schulhoff from 1922.
The modern style jazz-inspired suite includes dances of ‘pops’ appeal – Ragtime, Boston Waltz, Tango, Shimmy and more. Following the close-to-capacity attendance at the previous Galston Concert by pianist Bernard Walz in early June, advanced bookings for 29 July are advised online at www.trybooking.com (search Galston).
