Nothing to see but the Proms

A Musica Viva staff member heading to London recently lamented that there were no concerts to see while he was there, except for the Proms, of course. What a problem to have!

It’s nice to see a lot of friends of Musica Viva in the Proms line-up this year, including artists like Khatia Buniatishvili, Angela Hewitt, Paul Lewis, Stephen Osborne and the Elias String Quartet, all of whom have toured for Musica Viva in the past.

If you’re not fortunate enough to be in London, don’t despair, as there are plenty of great concerts coming up here in Australia too! The Goldner String Quartet and Ian Munro kick off their national tour in a matter of days, and

Stephen Hough arrives in the country not long after their tour concludes. There are plenty of concerts not to be missed in Musica Viva’s other series too, including the Australian Brass Quintet at both Sydney and Melbourne Coffee Concerts in September, and a very special concert in the Utzon Room Rising Stars series featuring Chronology Arts and the world premieres of six works by emerging Australian composers.

      Hi Natalie,

      Thanks for the update. Yes, we had heard about Alina and Cedric’s nomination – what fantastic news for them! It’s also nice to see other friends of Musica Viva nominated for Gramophone Awards, including the Pavel Haas Quartet who also toured for us last year.

      Best wishes and good luck to all nominees. We look forward to hearing the results!
