Skye McIntosh - Artistic Director
Australian Haydn Ensemble
Experience the essence of eighteenth century France in this chamber music program of Devienne, Rameau, Jadin, Mozart and Haydn.
Mozart’s charismatic Flute Quartet in A major opens this feast of music - its final movement containing a French style Rondo highlighting Mozart’s comical reputation. AHE also performs Jadin’s delightful and playful String Quartet Op. 3 No. 1, dedicated to Haydn. The turbulent mood continues with Haydn’s Symphony No. 87 in a new string quartet arrangement by Vi King Lim. The program closes with Rameau’s Cinquième Concert from Pièces de clavecin en concerts, paying homage to earlier composers Forqueray and Marais.
