Love: Weber and Franck
Music inspired by romance, created with love, and presented with passion.
About The Music
Where words have failed, music has been the language of friends, lovers and admirers from afar. In a program of dedications, declarations and a wedding or two, these are works created out of great love.
From Franck's endearing Violin and Piano Sonata, composed and performed at a friend’s wedding to Elgar’s lyrical Romance for Bassoon and Strings (arr. Trevor Cramer). Also featured in the program is young-blood clarinettist (and winner of the Young Performer of the Year Awards in 2015) Lloyd Van’t Hoff joining Co-Artistic Director David Rowden in a performance of Australian composer Gerard Brophy’s We Two Boys Together Clinging.
This is an evening filled with passion and tenderness and musical friendships.
