Welcome!

After the unavoidable changes to our 2020 season, I’m very pleased to bring you two brand new programs to finish off this dramatic year, perhaps a fittingly turbulent year to celebrate the 250th birthday of Beethoven! One of the new programs is our tribute to the master to replace the concert we couldn’t do in May. Both groups will be featured as a Spring Package (you can buy both together for a discount) at the Melbourne Digital Concert Hall.

The two new programs feature five brilliant new guest artists and welcome back two favourite W&F alumnae. You can read about them on the artists page.

I hope you can join us.

Upcoming Concerts

Beethoven’s Piano

Beethoven’s public premiere of his extraordinary 4th Piano Concerto in December 1808 was to be his last performance as soloist with orchestra. An anonymous arrangement of the orchestral accompaniment, popular in Vienna during his lifetime, enables us to present this special work as a sextet. Our overture is his inventive and effervescent Opus 11 Piano Trio.
