Viva a new season of music!

Musica Viva Lismore and the Northern Rivers Conservatorium Arts Centre will present five concerts of fine music throughout the Northern Rivers this year.

First concert of the series features Ensemble Liaison at Lismore City Hall next Wednesday, March 24, from 7.30pm.

This trio – David Griffiths (clarinet), Svetlana Bogosavljevic (cello) and Timothy Young (piano) – performed its debut concert for ABC Classic FM and was featured in The Best of Sunday Live 2006.

Their flawless playing is only matched by the enthusiasm, joy and (musical) love they create on stage. The ensemble was recently named Ensemble in Residence at Monash University.

Much of the music they’ll play next Wednesday is based on folk traditions with Bartok’s Romanian folk dances, folky works by Brahms and Gershwin and the fantasy-inspired Beethoven Trio op 11. (I don’t know if they’ll be doing any Arlo Guthrie.)

You can actually see them performing on YouTube.

Tickets are $30/25/15 from Lismore Music in Magellan St (6621 3105); Duck Creek Emporium in Alstonville Plaza; La Boutique in River St, Ballina (6686 2662); and at the door.

Family tickets are available through the Northern Rivers Conservatorium Arts Centre (6621 2266).
