Events in Melbourne

Saturday 10th November 2018

As well as the specific events, markets, exhibitions and attractions listed below for this particular Saturday, you may also be interested in our general suggestions for 20 Things To Do in Melbourne on a Saturday.

 

Lixsania and the Labyrinth

Lixsania Fernandez

The Australian Brandenburg Orchestra with Paul Dyer (Artistic Director), Lixsania Fernandez (Cuba) viola da gamba and  Shaun Lee-Chen baroque violin perform

  • Corelli, A. Scarlatti, Marais Folia pasticcio
  • Locatelli Violin Concerto in D 'Il laberinto armonico', Op. 3 No. 12
  • Vivaldi Concerto for 2 violins & viola da gamba, RV 578
  • Graun Concerto for Viola da Gamba in G Major
  • Vivaldi Sinfonia al Santo Sepolcro, RV 169
  • Duchiffre Tango from Concerto for 2 Violas da Gamba

Charismatic Lixsania Fernandez’s energetic viola da gamba leads the Brandenburg in this tantalizing twist on the baroque. Her passionate performances on this iconic baroque instrument bring a vibrant energy to Vivaldi and Graun before detouring for a spirited Tango. Brandenburg's Concertmaster Shaun Lee-Chen performs Locatelli’s infamous Violin Concerto in D, The Harmonic Labyrinth. The immense technical challenge of this work was hinted at by the composer when he inscribed the score with ‘easy to enter, difficult to exit’.

White Hat suggests that if you think of baroque music as being stuffy and boring, this could well be the concert to change your mind.
