Soirées Musicales Quintette
Presents A Christmas Songbook
You are invited to an elegant Christmas concert with a difference – artsongs, vocal ensembles and piano music by the great romantic composers, performed in one of Brisbane's finest historic buildings.
Soirées Musicales Quintette performs rarely heard songs and carol settings, as enjoyed by salon audiences in Victorian times. Seasonal songs, duets and quartets from Germany & Austria (Schumann, Brahms, Reger, Cornelius, Strauss), Scandinavia (Grieg, Sibelius, Gade), France (Gounod, Adam, Rossini, Fauré, Debussy), England & America (Stainer, Ives, Britten) will be interspersed with selections from Liszt's charming Christmas Tree Suite for solo piano.
Post-performance refreshments will be served.
