GROVE CLASSICS 2017: ASHLEY SMITH and FRIENDS. Ashley Smith (Clarinet) Akiko Miyazawa (Violin) Kate Sullivan (Violin) Ben Caddy (Viola) Jon Tooby (Cello)

Sunday, June 25, 2017 - 5:00pm

Local clarinet hero Ashley William Smith is joined by some of Perth’s finest string players in a program centred around Mozart’s Clarinet Quintet in A major. Composed in 1789, the quintet is regarded as one of the finest works of chamber music, much-loved by performers and audiences alike. Haydn’s “The Lark” String Quartet in D major dates from one year later, and enjoys a similar popularity for its soaring bird-like melody, dance-inspired minuet and energetic bubbling finale.

These two seminal works are set against Lachlan Skipworth’s deeply moving clarinet quintet “The Eternal”, heard here in its West Australian premiere.


Enjoy a complimentary HAPPS Margaret River wine tasting  and the intimacy of superb chamber music in the comfortable environment of the state-of-the-art THE GROVE Library building (1 Leake St., Peppermint Grove (cnr Leake St & Stirling Hwy).

All Grove Classics 2017 performances feature BLACK BOX Visual Arts Studio Art Show exhibiting the work of Australian and international artists. All artworks and reproductions are for sale.
