Thoughts turn to music

THE second concert and pre-concert talk in the Kendall PhiloMusica concert series 2014 will be presented on Sunday 27 July at the Kendall School of Arts.
Following an earlier exploration of the intriguing relationship between music and the philosophy of the 19th century philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche in May this year, this event traces how thinkers of the early 19th century influenced the musicians of that time.
The chamber music performance includes works by Carl Reinecke, Felix Mendelssohn and Carl Maria von Weber and a Grand Trio written in 1809 by the important poet, painter and composer E. T. A. Hoffmann.
The performance is presented by musicians from the Novalis Ensemble including pianist Jeanell Carrigan, violinist Goetz Richter and cellist Minah Choe who will be joined by the brilliant young Australian flute virtuoso Kate Proctor.
The afternoon performance in the Kendall PhiloMusica series is preceded by a one-hour long pre-concert talk on the day at 11.30am in the Kendall School of Arts when musician, philosopher and associate professor at the Sydney Conservatorium Goetz Richter will explore the way in which early 19th century thinkers and poets of the Romantic period inspired musicians of the time.
Tickets for the performance at 2pm are $30 (including complimentary attendance at the pre-concert talk at 11.30am).
Profits from the Kendall PhiloMusica series will benefit the Kendall National Violin Competition.
Further PhiloMusica events are planned for 16 November (Beethoven and the Absolute) and 12-14 December (Kendall Schubertiade).
