SONIC BEETHOVEN | Raucous Beethoven meets modern Australian chamber works for flute and piano.

Concert or Performance

11 Jun 2021 Once Only Event

In its debut series, Contra Concerts in association with Southern Cross Soloists presents three intimate chamber recitals, housed in the resplendent heritage-listed halls of Brisbane’s Holy Trinity Church in Fortitude Valley, Toowoomba’s St Luke’s Church and the Old Hall of Toowoomba Grammar School. To attend a Contra Concert permits you an hour to switch off, recharge and disconnect from deadline mode. Rebel against your smartphone and dare to get nothing done! We invite you to sit back, let your mind wander and share in the rare exchange of music between performers and audience, only achievable in the intimacy of the chamber music salon

Modern Australian works for flute and piano collide with boisterous Beethoven, as young soloists Alex Raineri and Jonathan Henderson continue their ongoing collaboration with an exuberant recital of music bursting with inventiveness and imagination. A commotion of childish tantrums unfurls in Beethoven’s Rondo a Capriccio Op.129(better known as The Rage over the Lost Penny), twisting and turning unapologetically in a heavy-handed romp over the keys.
