The Melbourne Musicians directed by Frank U.Pam present two worldclass soloists in Bach's famous Double Violin Concerto in D minor and two exciting double concertos by Vivaldi, a famous violin virtuoso.
Miki Tsunoda was a member of the highly acclaimed Duo Sol with pianist Caroline Almonte. She is now Principal Second violin in a top Belgian orchestra and has been Acting First Violin of the popular Flinders Quartet.
Anne Harvey-Nagl is Concertmaster of the Vienna Volksoper orchestra and guest Concertmaster and soloist with the Vienna Mozart Orchestra. She also leads the very successful Koehne Quartet.
Both Miki and Anne have visited Australia as members of the Australian World Orchestra.
The two Vivaldi concertos (Op.3 No.8 in A minor and Op.3 No.11 in D minor) were transcribed by Bach for keyboard and served as a model for his own concertos.
When they were recognised as being by Vivaldi there was a resurgence in the appreciation of Vivaldi as a great composer.
The program includes Bach Overture in A minor, BWV 61
and Vivaldi concertos for String Orchestra in C V 114, E minor RV 113 and A major, RV 158.
St Johns Southgate is intimate with excellent acoustics.
