Inspired by the words of Tolstoy, the opening program of Tinalley’s 2017 Series features masterpieces of two Czech composers, Antonin Dvorák’s beloved ‘American' Quartet and Leos Janáček’s Kreutzer Sonata.

Janáček’s first quartet, the Kreutzer Sonata was written in response to Russian novelist Leo Tolstoy’s provocative novella of the same name. Tolstoy’s writing in turn was inspired by Beethoven’s Kreutzer Sonata for Violin and Piano. Beethoven himself is represented in this program by his eternally popular “Harp” Quartet.

Giveaway: Enigma, ANAM, South Melbourne Town Hall, Melbourne


Win a double pass to see the opening concert of the ANAM 2017 season - Enigma, at South Melbourne Town Hall, Saturday 4 March. 

The Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM) opens their 2017 season with a concert on Saturday 4 March featuring four great orchestral works by four major English composers. Britten’s impassioned cry from the heart juxtaposes powerfully with Vaughan Williams’ and Ades’ fantasies on the music of two earlier masters before culminating in Elgar’s ever-popular Enigma Variations.

Leading the ANAM Orchestra will be Principal Conductor of the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra, Nicholas Carter. Carter is the youngest conductor – and only the fourth Australian ever – to be appointed Principal Conductor of a major Australian orchestra so is the perfect fit to highlight ANAM’s young musicians. 

For a chance to win, email your details to competitions@aco.com.au with ENIGMA in the subject line.
