Atos Trio returns to Melbourne after fabulous Sydney performance
What a weekend for the Atos Trio! A fabulous performance in Sydney was followed by celebration of Carl Vine’s 10th anniversary as Artistic Director of Musica Viva. According to Carl chamber music is “an inherently intimate and perpetually intriguing art form,” and Carl has done a spectacular job of guiding Musica Viva and our audiences through this art form over the past 10 years.
On Sunday the Atos Trio travelled to Melbourne where they performed a special program of Mozart and Mendelssohn for Musica Viva’s Amadeus society, a group of esteemed individuals who have joined together to support the extraordinary artistic initiatives of Musica Viva Australia. Today the Trio has some time to rest before tomorrow night’s second concert in the Melbourne Recital Centre. While in Melbourne the ensemble will also visit Dame Elisabeth Murdoch, patron of the Melbourne International Chamber Music Competition in which they had so much success in 2007.
The trio’s tour is fast coming to a close, with performances still to come in Hobart, Newcastle and Sydney, before heading off to Mudgee to perform at the Huntington Estate Music Festival, performing a range of works by composers as diverse as Cassado, Faure and Schubert.
