Sunday Series Concert 3
Sunday 29th October - 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Sunday Series Concert 3 presents an exquisite musical journey, combining the compositions of Bloch, Rachmaninov, and Saint-Saëns. This captivating concert, performed by a the Coffs Coast Piano Quartet with special guest Jonah Spriggs, promises an afternoon of emotional depth and musical brilliance.
Ernest Bloch’s rich and evocative compositions will transport the audience through a landscape of contrasting emotions. The three short pieces for string quartet, Prelude, Dusk, and Rustic Dance showcase a fusion of traditional and modern elements that are unique to Bloch’s music.
Sergei Rachmaninov’s Sonata for Cello and Piano is a masterpiece and a staple in the combination’s repertoire. Known for his intense romanticism and emotional drive, this stunning sonata takes center stage for the first half of the concert. The lush orchestration and pianistic brilliance of Rachmaninov’s pieces are sure to captivate the audience, creating a sense of intimacy and profound connection.
Concluding the Sunday Series Concert 3 is the stunning Piano Quartet in B Flat Major by Camille Saint-Saëns. Known for the profoundly powerful Organ Symphony, Saint-Saëns brings the musicians and audience into a much more intimate space with the beautiful Piano Quartet. This piece blends elegance and grandeur, drawing upon a rich palette of colors and is a perfect way to bring the 2023 Sunday Series to a close.
Join us for an afternoon of chamber music on October 29 at 1pm and enjoy the finale Sunday Series Concert of 2023.
