Sabine Meyer’s tour nears its end, Modigliani String Quartet heads to Mudgee

While Sabine Meyer departs Australia on Sunday, the Modigliani String Quartet has given us an extra week before it returns to Paris to appear at the Huntington Estate Music Festival.

The Huntington Estate Music Festival is held each year in the Barrel Room of Huntington Estate in Mudgee. The musical content is devised by Artistic Director Carl Vine and managed by Musica Viva Australia. In keeping with the long and distinguished history of the festival, each year features a stunning collection of prominent international performing artists alongside Australia’s finest musicians, in stimulating programs that run the full gamut of the chamber music experience.

This year 35 marvellous musicians fill the air of Mudgee’s isle with sound and sweet airs. In addition to the Modigliani the audience will hear American baritone Thomas Meglioranza, British cellist Guy Johnston, and New Zealand’s Aroha String Quartet. Australian musicians include Caroline Almonte, Kristian Chong, Alice Giles, Bernadette Harvey, Andrew Meisel and Virginia Taylor, as well as the Adelaide Chamber Singers conducted by Carl Crossin. Finally, the Australian String Quartet gives its last performance in its current line-up.

We’ll bring more news from Mudgee in the next week but in the meantime let’s sit back and enjoy Sabine’s final performances. And if you’re not in Melbourne, you can listen again on ABC Classic FM here.
