Joseph Haydn: Divertimenti for flute, violin & cello

Greg Dikmans (flute), Lucinda Moon (violin) & Hilary Kleinig (cello)

Elder Perspectives Series (Adelaide, SA)

Venue: Elder Hall, North Terrace, Adelaide, SA

The elegance, charm and wit of Haydn's six Divertimenti are brought to life with the supple tones and dynamics of period instruments in an intimate setting.

Haydn’s Six Divertimenti were first published in London in 1784 by William Forster, a dealer and violin maker who purchased more than 120 compositions by Haydn. They are chamber works of quality and charm which bear out fully Haydn’s comment that “in instrumental music my pure musical fantasies are usually given free reign”.

The Divertimento (which in Italian means diversion or amusement), along with the Cassation and Serenade, played an important role in the social and musical life of the middle classes in the second half of the 18th-century, particularly in South Germany and Austria.

Parisian Soirée

Greg Dikmans (flute), Lucinda Moon (violin), Hilary Kleinig (cello) & Glenys March (harpsichord)

Ngeringa Arts Concerts Series (Mt Barker, SA)

Venue: Living Arts Centre at the Mt Barker Waldorf School, Sims Road, Mt Barker, SA

Works by Georg Philipp Telemann (1681–1767), Joseph Bodin de Boismortier (1689–1755), Louis-Antoine Dornel (c. 1680-after 1756) and André Chéron (1695-1766).

Performed on period instruments.

Telemann made a triumphant visit to Paris in 1737. He was at the height of his fame in Germany, but still lacked international recognition and to achieve that he had to succeed in Paris. For this visit he composed his justly famous Paris Quartets. He realised his music had to adapt itself to the taste of the Paris salons and concerts, as well as flatter the musicians who performed it and provide enough originality to keep the interest of the quickly satiated society. With these Nouveuax Quatuors Telemann not only fulfilled these aims, but also produced some of the finest chamber music written in Europe in the first half of the 18th century.

Telemann’s Paris Quartet in D major will be complemented by works by celebrated French musicians of the time.
