The Sydney Opera House has announced three performances for the first half of next year as part of their Utzon Music chamber concert series, taking place in the only venue within the performing arts precinct designed by Danish Architect Jørn Utzon, who designed the iconic façade of the building. The three performances include performances of chamber works by Beethoven and Mozart, as well as premieres of new works by Australian composers Paul Stanhope and Brett Dean.
“The rediscovery of live chamber music marks, for many of us, a meaningful post-COVID milestone. More than ever, we are seeking those precious experiences of unmatched artistry and creative connection that give us such joy and purpose,” said Casey Green, curator of the Utzon Music series.
The first concert for the season on 5 March features a program of sonatas for piano and cello by Beethoven. Pianist Aura Go joins Australian Chamber Orchestra Principal cello
