Geelong Chamber Music Society
About The Music
Francis Poulenc’s wartime set of songs was composed shortly after he was demobilised as the result of the treaty between France and Adolf Hitler. Hôtel Banalités is one of Poulenc’s most popular works; and this concert presents five different, but very characteristic moods.
Best known for his virtuosic piano skills, Rachmaninoff's vocal works are stunning representations of some of the finest melodic writing to be found.
This concert also includes a performance of Mozart's Kegelstatt Trio famously composed in one afternoon over a game of skittles, alongside Schubert's Shepherd on the Rock which needs little introduction. Join Omega Ensemble & Lee Abrahmsen for an evening of intimate chamber music in Geelong!
