Orava Quartet ‘Death and the Maiden’ tour 2019

Melbourne – presented by Melbourne Recital Centre’s Southbank Series

Primrose Potter Salon, 6-7pm

De Victoria – Schubert – Byrd

“A cornerstone of chamber music, Schubert’s Death and the Maiden is an expressive, romantic, and dramatic work that was written when Schubert himself was in death’s shadow. Considered a masterpiece, and filled with anguish, yearning and gentle consolation, it vividly tells the story of a young maiden who begs Death to pass her by.

Balancing the emotive power of Schubert’s work, Orava presents two sacred works from the Renaissance, reimagined for string quartet: An Ave verum Corpus by English composer William Byrd, and the motet, O Magnum Mysterium by Thomas Luis De Victoria, the most famous composer in 16th century Spain.”
