2020 PERSPECTIVES TRILOGY

 

Three composers. Three Perspectives of This Time.

 

We commissioned three composers to draw on the thoughts and feelings arising from the global pandemic of 2020. In collaboration with composers, players and a sound engineer, we explored ways in which elements of spontaneity and deep connection might still be present in a very different form of “chamber music” - one in which recordings were made from isolation, and following the guidelines of physical distancing. The resulting trilogy is available online from Dec 14 2020 at kegelstattensemble.bandcamp.com

 

We are delighted to be working with composers Jakub JANKOWSKI, Luke ALTMANN and Peter De JAGER and audio engineer Sam LENCH.

 

Our musicians are:

Alex TSIBOULSKI, guitar

Caleb LAVERY-BROOK, guitar

Emma PERKINS, violin 

Anna WEBB, viola 

Kim WORLEY, cello

Alex CASTLE, flute

Steph WAKE-DYSTER, clarinet

MELBOURNE DIGITAL CONCERT HALL 

THURSDAY 17TH SEPTEMBER 2020 AT 7PM (AEST)
MUSIC FOR OBOE, PIANO AND STRINGS

We have been invited to perform in this fantastic online space where artists can connect to communities around Australia during the COVD-19 crisis. 

To play chamber music with friends is a thing of profound joy, and while this has always been true, it seems especially distilled in 2020. Kegelstatt Ensemble is delighted to share this deep communion with you, wherever you may be, in three expressive gems by Schumann, Britten and Mozart.

Robert Schumann: Romance Op.94 no.3 for oboe and piano
Benjamin Britten: Phantasy - Quartet Op.2 for oboe, violin, viola and cello
W.A. Mozart: Piano Quartet in G minor K478

Renae Stavely - oboe
Michael Ierace - piano
Ben Dollman - violin
Anna Webb - viola
Kim Worley - cello


SCHUBERT QUINTET


POSTPONED  (due to pandemic restrictions)

The Little Music Room35 Blakiston Road, Littlehampton

 

In this intimate space close to nature, Kegelstatt presents Schubert’s glorious quintet for 2 violins, viola and 2 cellos, played in historically informed style on gut strings. Special guest artists include the internationally renowned historical violinist Rachael Beesley, and cellist Thomas Marlin.

 

Franz Schubert: String Quintet in C major, D956


Kegelstatt is dedicated to facilitating approachable experiences of great works and lesser known gems of the chamber music repertoire, especially those rarely heard live due to their scoring for non-standard combinations of instruments.
