Some forthcoming performances at Llewellyn Hall:

Tognetti's Beethoven

Richard Tognetti has been  chosen by White Hat as one of our 100 Important Living Australians. To find out why, we suggest you make your way to this concert.

For this performance of Beethoven's Fifth, the ACO will expand its forces, and also showcase another outstanding signature work, Beethoven’s mighty Violin Concerto. 

It has been some 25 years since Richard Tognetti gave his first performance of the Beethoven Violin Concerto with the ACO back in 1993, and he last performed it with the Orchestra 11 years ago.

Benedetti Elschenbroich Grynyuk Trio

Musica Viva present the Benedetti Elschenbroich Grynyuk Trio with Nicola Benedetti (violin), Leonard Elschenbroich (cello) and Alexei Grynyuk (piano).

In a break with conventional piano trio ensembles, these busy soloists often include works for accompanied violin and cello in their recitals. White Hat suggests that aficionados of the piano trio repertoire will not be left out and will feel well rewarded by their rendition of the Ravel Piano Trio.

Arvo Pärt & JS Bach

Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir

 The Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir with the  Australian Chamber Orchestra (Richard Tognetti director) perform:

White Hat strongly recommends that anyone interested in choral music (or classical music in general) should go out of their way to hear this excellent programme. The world-renowned Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir together with the  Australian Chamber Orchestra alternate the mystical minimalism of the Estonian composer Arvo Pärt with the intricate and muscular polyphony of Bach's motets. Combing these two world's is Pärt's Toccata for strings from his Collage on B-A-C-H. The programme is rounded up with an offering form contemporary Estonian composer Galina Grigorjeva and Australian composer Peter Sculthorpe's Djilile, inspired by Indigenous song.

Our rating - 5 Hats

Beethoven & Prokofiev

Australian Chamber Orchestra

The Australian Chamber Orchestra with Lorenza Borrani (director & violin) perform:

Over the years, White Hat has found that the Australian Chamber Orchestra has consistently brought us some of the most thoughtfully constructed and thought-provoking concerts on the Australian scene. This concert is no exception.

Beethoven's late string quartets strain to break the limitations of their limited forces and gain a useful new perspective when occasionally heard in arrangement for string orchestra. Similarly Prokofiev's Violin Sonata No.1 provides different insights when the piano is replaced by string orchestra. As an interlude between these powerful works, Bulgarian-British composer Dobrinka Tabakova’s Such Different Paths offers a radiant interlude evoking life’s journey.

Fiery and charismatic Italian violinist Lorenza Borrani, who delighted audiences on her last tour here in 2016, returns to lead this program of emotionally rich music.
