The Bowery Theatre

From My Life

This performance is part of The Bowery’s inaugural Classical Music Series which presents internationally renowned classical musicians in the heart of St Albans, for all ages to enjoy.

Melbourne Chamber Orchestra’s Quartet presents two iconic works of chamber music by Haydn & Smetana. Rhythmic jokes, harmonic twists of the knife, and razor-sharp wit come together to give us Haydn at his best.

In 1876, afflicted by deafness, the Czech composer Bedřich Smetana wrote one of the most ambitious string quartets of the Romantic period, From My Life. A deeply personal statement, the quartet is imbued with the biographical vignettes of the title, from lively dances to heartfelt yearnings of mature love and tragedy.

With Czech passion at the fore and virtuosic use of all the members of the quartet, this is a wonderful musical experience for new listeners and connoisseurs alike.
