Thank You Australia Piano Quartet

Thank you Australia Piano Quartet for opening the Society's 69th concert season with such a memorable performance. Friday 8 March at The Concourse  was a night of great classical music played with masterful technique, intelligence and passion. From the elegant finesse of Mozart and Beethoven to the dramatic intensity of Brahms, it was a knockout!

Tony Burke from ClassikON came along to review the concert for ClassikON. "It is hardly necessary to say that the Sydney Mozart Society, now in its sixty ninth year, produced another recital of the highest quality." he wrote.  You can read his full review on the ClasskON website. 

These are our favourite photos of the pre-concert rehearsal on the stage of the Concourse Concert Hall Chatswood.
