Highlights of the 2016 Chamber Music Weekend

In the 2016 Festival, Chamber music had a new home at UWA. Over three days, there were 18 events performed on a purpose-built stage for the beautiful acoustic of Winthrop Hall, as well as in the gardens outside. Audiences experienced a full breadth of styles and expressions, from Mozart to Messiaen, Bach to Bartok, Liszt to Ligeti, and indulged in a program presented by the finest soloists and ensembles from both Australia and abroad.
