Tuggeranong Twilight Concert Series presented A seasonal Journey through Voice, Violin and Viola on Sunday March 26 2017, 5.00pm. Please contact us if you would like to find out more information about other events on at Tuggeranong Arts Centre.
Three well known and highly experienced Australian musicians – Sarahlouise Owens – voice, Andrew Lorenz – violin/viola and Wendy Lorenz – piano, join forces to present a captivating selection of solos, duos and trios inspired by the changing seasons in the opening concert of this year’s Tuggeranong Twilight Series.
Currently based in Canberra, all three artists enjoy outstanding careers, having performed and broadcast throughout Australia, Europe, Asia and the Americas.
Originally from Canberra, Sarahlouise Owens undertook advanced studies at the prestigeous Royal Northern College of Music, Manchester and subsequently worked extensively in Europe.
Engagements include the Radio Choir in Cologne, Theater Hagen, Brussels’ La Monnaie, Paris Châtelet and the theatres of Frankfurt and Hannover.
She has been a consistent ensemble member in the Wagner Summer Festival in Bayreuth. Since her return to Canberra, she has performed solo recitals for ArtSong Canberra and Wesley, been soloist in the Canberra International Music Festival and in concerts with the UC Chorale, SCUNA and Canberra Choral Society.
Prior to coming to Canberra Andrew and Wendy Lorenz have both performed as soloists with leading Australian orchestras and have been members of some of Australia’s finest chamber ensembles including the New England Ensemble, The Australian Piano Trio, The Phoenix Ensemble and currently the Lanyon Trio, which will feature later in this series.
They have broadcast for radio and television networks worldwide – including BBC London, Sender Freies Berlin, NHK Tokyo, Studio Berne and many others and have performed world premiere performances and recordings for a number of celebrated composers including Peter Sculthorpe, Mary Mageau, Ernst Widmer (Swiss) and John McCabe (British).
For many composers throughout the centuries, seasonal images have provoked some of their most inspired and masterful creations. This concert draws on this rich and colourful repertoire to take the listener on a musical journey through all four seasons – beginning with Beethoven’s iconic Spring Sonata (violin & piano) then on to a highly evocative selection of songs by Berlioz, Hahn, Barber, Wolf and Gershwin. All three artists will then combine for two seldom heard highlights from the repertoire – Schubert’s spring imbued Shepherd on the Rock (Soprano/violin/piano) contrasted by the autumnal glow of Brahms’ Two songs for alto, viola and piano.
