Dreams & Prayers | Sunday October 15, 3pm

We are so excited to be working with one of the world's finest violinists, Alexander Sitkovetsky!

A very warm welcome to one of the superstars of the violin world, UK-based virtuoso, Alexander Sitkovetsky, who joins Ensemble Q in a program of not only incredible music, but incredible contrasts. Golijov's extraordinary Quintet for Klezmer Clarinet and String Quartet has become a classic of the concert hall stage in its short 20-year life, and to follow, the most extraordinary expression of the soul in Schubert's String Quintet.

Featuring Paul Dean on Klezmer clarinet and bass clarinet, Dreams and Prayers by Golijov will transport you to far away places in an extraordinary journey into a magical soundworld full of mystique and passion with intense beauty, angst and rhythmic drive. Be prepared to have your breath taken away by this incredible work, then sip a glass of fine wine in the foyer before the exquisite Schubert String Quintet, with guest cellist Patrick Murphy. 

Please join the musicians for drinks after the concert in the Conservatorium foyer.

A little bit about our mentorship program....

Ensemble Q exists not only as a flagship ensemble of the best musicians in Australia, but as a unique and exciting ground for young emerging chamber musicians and soloists to gain incredible performance and learning opportunities. The Ensemble Q Mentorship program is proudly sponsored by Philip Bacon Galleries and has already given 5 exceptional young musicians the chance to play alongside Ensemble Q members. 

Talented Violist Nathan Greentree (below) performed in Shostakovich piano quintet and Mahler 4 earlier this year, and this is what he had to say after the experience....

"Playing with Ensemble Q was a wonderful experience. Coming into the program, I had obviously heard of the core ensemble artists and knew what each of them had accomplished in their careers, but to be able to sit alongside them and work intensively during the week enabled me to further increase my understanding of the intricacies of chamber music and ensemble playing. The ensemble was always so open to experimenting with ideas until a common ground was reached, which is all that you want whilst working in a small setting. Working with musicians like those in Ensemble Q is always so encouraging and inspiring as it makes me realise how fortunate I am to make my passion for music my career and reaffirms that this is what I want to do for the rest of my life. I'd like to thank Paul and Trish for inviting to perform with the group and congratulate them on what is a truly great incentive."
