Mimir Chamber Music Festival – Concert One – HEAVENLY

To open the festival, rising star Soprano Georgia Wilkinson (2019 Herald Sun Aria Winner) welcomes listeners in a glowing rendition of Schubert’s lied, The Shepherd on the Rock. The heavenly music continues, featuring clarinettist David Griffiths in Mozart’s evergreen A Major Quintet. To conclude, Golijov’s K’vakarat evokes the spirit of klezmer, Jewish music to ‘build castles of sound in our memories.’
