Lior & Tinalley String Quartet | SOLD OUT | @ Orange Regional Conservatorium | Orange | New South Wales | Australia

Lior & Tinalley String Quartet

Through Nature to Eternity featuring Lior and Tinalley String Quartet.

Presented in association with Musica Viva Australia.

Doors open 6pm, performance begins at 6:30pm.

Singer/songwriter, Lior is renowned for his beautiful voice and lyrics that radiate truth and sincerity, and as the world searches for compassion and understanding, the importance of music as a means of communication cannot be undervalued.  In this musical narrative of love, loss and compassion, Tinalley and Lior perform a new song cycle by Melbourne composer, Ade Vincent. Three of Dvorak’s rousing love songs from his collection of Cypresses; echoes of love cherished, tormented and forgotten, are paired with Barber’s haunting ‘Adagio’ from his String Quartet Opus 11 and Lior’s achingly haunting ‘My Grandfather’. In a final quest for peace, Lior and Nigel Westlake reimagine Sim Shalom (Grant Peace) from ‘Compassion’, merging the symphonic world with that of the string quartet.

Ravel’s effusive String Quartet opens the program. Critics and public alike rejected the quartet when it was first performed, and yet now it is one of the genres most beloved works. At times wistful and at other times melancholic, even devastating; the work is in itself a reminder of the changeable nature of public sentiment.

“A damn-near-perfect display of incisive and thoughtful music-making.” – Limelight Magazine

Australian Romantic & Classical Orchestra – Emerge
Aug 7 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Australian Romantic & Classical Orchestra - Emerge @ Orange Regional Conservatorium | Orange | New South Wales | Australia

Emerge | Haydn, Mozart & Mannheim

Australian Romantic & Classical Orchestra is a world-class orchestra of leading Australian musicians who are dedicated to the performance of Classical and Romantic orchestral and chamber music repertoire in historically informed style on period instruments. 

The second half of the 18th century was a time of revolution in music. Mozart’s Bassoon Concerto exemplifies this, looking backwards to Vivaldi but written in the emerging sonata form. The revolution was driven by leaps in virtuosity made by musicians of the Mannheim court, and many techniques developed at Mannheim can be heard in Haydn’s ‘Drum Roll’ Symphony and Mozart’s ‘Haffner’ Symphony. One of the world’s finest bassoon players, Jane Gower, performs the concerto.

2021 Chamber Music Series

Combining our love of education and performance.

Despite the setbacks of 2020, with the Chamber Series being all but completely canceled, planning has been well underway to make sure it returns in 2021 with new music, themes and performers.

The ORC Chamber Music Series combines performance and education, the musicians visit local schools to demonstrate their instruments, perform selections of works and inspire young minds.

The professional musicians and teachers of the ORC are our greatest asset and invariably this series showcases that fact. As always, there will be music from the greatest composers of all time, exciting modern works and original compositions.

Join us for these relaxed Friday evening concerts, the perfect way to wind down the week.
