GROVE CLASSICS 2017: ASHLEY SMITH and FRIENDS. Composer Lachlan Skipworth, Ashley Smith (Clarinet) Akiko Miyazawa (Violin) Kate Sullivan (Violin) Ben Caddy (Viola) Jon Tooby (Cello).

Monday, June 26, 2017 - 1:00am

Local clarinet hero Ashley William Smith is joined by some of Perth’s finest string players in a program centred around Mozart’s Clarinet Quintet in A major. Composed in 1789, the quintet is regarded as one of the finest works of chamber music, much-loved by performers and audiences alike. Haydn’s “The Lark” String Quartet in D major dates from one year later, and enjoys a similar popularity for its soaring bird-like melody, dance-inspired minuet and energetic bubbling finale.

These two seminal works are set against Lachlan Skipworth’s deeply moving clarinet quintet “The Eternal”, heard here in its West Australian premiere, presented and conducted by the composer Lachlan Skipworth.


Enjoy a complimentary HAPPS Margaret River wine tasting  and the intimacy of superb chamber music in the comfortable environment of the state-of-the-art THE GROVE Library building (1 Leake St., Peppermint Grove (cnr Leake St & Stirling Hwy).

All Grove Classics 2017 performances feature BLACK BOX Visual Arts Studio Art Show exhibiting the work of Australian and international artists. All artworks and reproductions are for sale.
