Bach by Candlelight

With Government House Ballroom at its most atmospheric, this program will explore the beauty, serenity and joyfulness of the music of JS Bach, one of the world’s most revered composers. From the transcendental magic of the Concerto for Two Violins to the vivacious Brandenburg concertos, the youthful exuberance of the chamber orchestra of St George’s College will be supported by the mastery of one of Australia’s finest violinists, Paul Wright. Presented in association with St George’s College.

Piers Lane in Concert

Australia’s finest concert pianist and one of our long-time favourites at Government House, Piers Lane returns to present a wide-ranging program that begins with Scarlatti and Bach then moves into the world of the great romantics. Chopin’s exquisite piano writing influenced generations of composers and this recital concludes with Rachmaninov’s homage to the master, his Variations on a Theme of Chopin.

Rising Stars

Every year Music on the Terrace proudly presents a program dedicated to the best young talent in Western Australia. Amongst the most popular groups to perform in Rising Stars over the years have been the choirs of Perth Modern School, directed by the talented Celia Christmass. One of Australia’s best youth choirs, the singing from Perth Modern School is always of the highest quality. We are also delighted to present once again the brilliant, international prize-winning pianist Shuan Hern Lee, who played in our first series in 2006, aged 3! It is a pleasure to welcome back these outstanding musicians and to introduce some other wonderful young talent.

Mozart at the Opera

Mozart himself conducted the first performance of this work in Vienna, and it has become a favourite in opera houses around the world. The hero Belmonte, assisted by his servant Pedrillo, attempts to rescue his beloved Konstanze from the harem of Pasha Selim. In this performance we present a chamber music version, an opera without singers, perfectly suited to the intimacy of Government House Ballroom and featuring outstanding guest performers and resident musicians of the Australian National Academy of Music in Melbourne.

Beethoven's Triple Concerto Sunday, 28 October, 2018 4:00PM   ·   More Info »
Beethoven's Triple Concerto

We welcome back our friends from the Fremantle Chamber Orchestra for another memorable and inspiring program. The concert features two of Perth’s most exciting string players, violinist Rebecca Glorie and cellist Louise McKay as soloists with pianist Mark Coughlan in Beethoven’s Triple Concerto. The only concerto Beethoven wrote for more than one soloist, the interaction between the three solo instruments and the orchestra in this unique piece is uplifting and engaging. The program will also feature music by composers influenced by Beethoven, including his contemporary, Carl Maria von Weber.
