Inventi Ensemble’s Sunday Classics presents the fascinating tale of Marianna Martines

Award-winning chamber musicians Inventi Ensemble will return to the Hawthorn Arts Centre’sChandelier Room stage on Sunday 18 April, presenting the fascinating tale of Marianna Martines: Classical music of Vienna.

Audiences can enjoy a program filled with music from Vienna, and learn a rich history around Marianna Martines, a great composer in her own right and influential member of the Vienna musical elite, as well as musician Joseph Haydn, a boarder in her house. Inventi Ensemble will also draw on Martines’ friendship with poet Metastasio, as well as her piano duets with Mozart. 

This performance in the beautiful Chandelier Room highlights the music of Martines alongside works by Haydn and Mozart, all played by Inventi Ensemble’s signature quintet of flute, oboe, violin, viola and cello.

Pioneered by Artistic Directors Melissa Doecke and Ben Opie, Inventi Ensemble first defined Australian music with their inventive style in early 2014. They have since gone on to perform extensively across Australia with a strong focus on endorsing young and local talent. Internationally, they have performed at London’s South Bank with San Francisco’s Ensemble Parrallèle, as well as music festivals across Europe, Abu Dhabi and USA. 

Melissa Doecke is an exciting flautist with a French sensibility, depicted by her elegant performance style and restrained emotion. Oboist Ben Opie has been described as an oboist of matchless capacity who has the power to keep his audience connected in every performance. 

Audiences can enjoy an afternoon of beautiful music at Hawthorn Arts Centre with Inventi Ensemble’s sweet sounds from Vienna.
