A clarinet melody, rising like the sun from shimmering strings.

Five of Australia’s most brilliant musicians. Works beloved and new from an age of discovery, emotion and light.

The Sunrise takes in a sweep of classical quartets, including the buoyant Mozart K.157, the melancholy Cavatina from Beethoven’s Op.130, and a turbulent Finnish landscape by the little-known Bernhard Crusell.

At the pinnacle is the Australian premiere of Haydn’s Sunrise quartet in a sparkling 18th-century clarinet arrangement by Vincenzo Gambaro, an Italian clarinetist and entrepreneur who arranged pieces by his friends Beethoven, Haydn and Mozart to highlight the clarinet’s lush tones.

The Sunrise brings five principals from the Australian Romantic & Classical Orchestra into the intimacy of chamber music, including co-artistic directors and long-time musical friends Rachael Beesley (violin) and Nicole van Bruggen (clarinet). They’re joined by Alison Rayner (violin), Stephen King (viola) and Natasha Kraemer (cello) – all nationally and internationally acclaimed experts in historically informed performance. Meet all five musicians and their instruments up close over Talk & Tea, a new audience opportunity held before every concert.

Bask in the luminous sonorities of rare historic instruments and music. Connect deeply with a panorama of emotions. Experience The Sunrise.
