It’s been a busy start to the 2023/24 season for Anthony Marwood. At the end of September Anthony chaired the jury of the Trondheim International Chamber Music Competition in which the Canadian, Rilian Trio secured the top prize. This was followed by a visit to Quebec City and Montreal to direct Les Violons Du Roy and perform Mendelssohn’s Concerto for Violin and Strings in D Minor.
Before setting off to Australia for his five-week tour, Anthony will first stop in Manchester to perform the first of his two dates this season with the Halle and Thomas Adès. Anthony will perform Adès’ Märchentänze at the Bridgewater Hall this evening 26th of October and return in April to perform Tippett’s Triple Concerto with Adès again on the podium.
The first leg of the Australian tour starts in Adelaide, with Anthony performing Korngold’s Concerto for Violin in D Major with the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra. Anthony will then continue to the UKARIA Cultural Centre to perform in a weekend festival he has curated. The five concerts over the three days will include a varied programme from Bach and Mozart to Schoenberg and Weill. Anthony will perform alongside artists such as James Crabb (accordion), Aleksandar Madžar (Piano) and Coleman Itzkoff (Cello) – more information here.
To conclude the tour Anthony will travel south to Melbourne and then across to the East Coast. Firstly, he will return to the Australian National Academy of Music, coaching, directing and performing a programme of Schumann and Mozart with the ANAM Musicians. Anthony will finish his tour with the Australian Chamber Orchestra, performing alongside accordionist James Crabb as part of ACO’s ‘Up Close’ series. The performances at Pier 2/3 will include Haydn’s Double Concerto in F Major, Vaughan Williams’ The Lark Ascending (arr.Crabb for violin and classical accordion) and Beamish’s Seavaigers.
