Musica Viva: Diana Doherty and The Streeton Trio

Adelaide Town Hall Adelaide
This lovely concert features two works specifically written for the rare combination of oboe, violin, cello and piano.

It's street-theatre-but-not-as-we-know-it in which the performers are disguised threads in the very real tapestry of a busy city thoroughfare and we, be-headphoned on raked seating, are the ones on display to be ignored or gawked at by passers-by.

Adelaide Festival: A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Adelaide Festival Centre Adelaide

And while a lesser composer might have merely adorned a masterpiece, he…
