After their hugely popular debut season in 2018, Inventi Ensemble continue their Sunday Classics series throughout 2019, presenting intimate Sunday afternoon chamber music concerts in the beautiful Chandelier Room at the Hawthorn Arts Centre.
Inventi offer a delectable program of musical appetisers, from Prokofiev to Mozart, and Piazzolla to new Australian works. For their first concert of the year, Summer, on 24 February, Inventi present their incredible five-instrument arrangement of Prokofiev’s Classical Symphony. Audiences will hear this iconic work performed by the virtuosic musicians, served alongside some beautiful flute and oboe quartets.
Their second show, Autumn, brings a special treat, with Inventi adding the dulcet sounds of the harp. Featuring a program of classical chamber works, this delightful concert will create an enchanting mood, perfect for a Mother’s Day afternoon on 12 May.
Escape Melbourne’s icy weather with Inventi Ensemble’s third concert, Winter, with flute and guitar duets. Expect globe-trotting music that jumps from South American tango to Eastern European folk music on 14 July.
Ending the Sunday Classics series with a symphonic blast, Inventi will perform their unique version of Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade. Dive into this enthralling tale of the 1001 Arabian Nights for a performance filled with Inventi flair on 27 October.
Artistic Directors Ben Opie (oboe) and Melissa Doecke (flute), have drawn together some of Australia’s finest soloists and chamber musicians. Internationally, Inventi musicians have performed at the BBC Proms, London’s Southbank, with San Francisco’s Ensemble Parrallele, as well as at music festivals in the UK, Abu Dhabi, Bahrain, Prague, Italy and USA.
