Chemistry, synchronicity, contrast and balance: the 14th Annual Bangalow Music Festival will be presenting first-class international and national musicians from August 14 to 17.
This year the festival will present nine concerts with music from Mendelssohn, Mozart, Ravel, the Russians Rimsky-Korsakov and Mussorgsky, Jolivet, Schuman, Brahms, Dvorak, Schönberg, Beethoven, Mahler, and Ives, as well as modern compositions from Elena Kats-Chernin and Michael Daugherty.
International violin virtuoso and Oscar and Golden Globe nominee Jack Liebeck makes a welcome return, while acclaimed UK violin sensation Victoria Sayles will be performing on her GB Guadagnini violin made in 1751.
Artistic director Tania Frazer says, ‘This year’s festival is all about the power of partnerships – the internal essence of chamber music.
‘We are particularly focused on the power of two.
‘If you spend your life with another musician who experiences music maybe a little differently, you can help each other… couples can achieve more.
‘And in the spirit of achieving more we have expanded the BMF program with three separately ticketed concert events in addition to the nine in the concert series.’
