Presented by Omega Ensemble

Shostakovich's profound Piano Quintet represents a period of writing where the young composer, who was then 34, was his most purely musical. The resulting work is an unusual yet unapologetic neo-classical piece that has since become the jewel in the crown of the 20th-century chamber music repertory. 

Showcasing the sincerity of three musical mavericks, Shostakovich’s monumental Piano Quintet is presented alongside John Adam’s rambunctious String Quartet No.1 and a world premiere by Australia’s own trailblazer Holly Harrison, commissioned by the Ensemble.
