Schubert String Quintet in C Major, D.956
Jessie Maryon-Davies presenter
Principal string players of Aurora Orchestra
NB this event has been designed to be experienced at floor level! Audience members will be provided with comfortable floor matting and cushions and invited to sit, recline or lie flat on the floor as they prefer. Traditional seating is very limited and cannot be booked.
Franz Schubert’s final instrumental work is one of the greatest piece of chamber music ever penned. Ferociously beautiful, it delves deep into the human soul, taking the listener on a journey that is at once tragic and uplifting. For this very special intimate late-night performance, be completely enveloped in the music as we lower the lights and invite you to come and sit or lie down in and amongst the musicians.
Grab a glass and settle in for an experimental late night series that allows audiences to get up close with and even become part of live performances in unique and playful ways! Curated by Aurora’s principal players, the Lock-In features an eclectic mix of our principal player’s favourite music and guest artists. Step inside and be prepared to let go.
Doors open – 9.45pm
