... brilliant from the outset ..." – Classic Melbourne on the Flinders Quartet

Start your Saturday with the joy of Ben Opie playing a youthful Ben Britten’s Phantasy Quartet – the work that launched his career. This is followed by Brahms’ grand partnership of Piano and String Quartet – the mighty F minor Quintet. Like a full cooked breakfast, this will nourish you for much of your first Festival day, played as it is by the crème of Melbourne’s chamber musicians.


Britten : Phantasy Quartet Op. 2 (with Ben Opie, Oboe)

Brahms : Piano Quintet in F minor, Op. 34a (with Ben Martin, Piano)
