Chamber Series - Janácek, Beethoven and Moore
The young and the young at heart. A concert that captures the curiosity of youth, with a sextet to echo its nostalgic charm and a world premiere by a young Australian composer.
Mládí, the title of Czech composer Leoš Janáček’s wind sextet translates to “Youth” – somewhat surprising considering Janáček was near 70 when it was written in 1924. The irrepressible composer had an extremely productive final decade. His opera for which is he most known, The Cunning Little Vixen was composed in the two years prior to Mládí, and a further opera, The Makropoulos Affair was composed the year after.
Truly an original work of woodwind chamber music, Mládí is a melancholic consideration of the composer’s childhood – written with the wisdom and skill of an entire career’s compositional experience.
