2012 Peninsula Summer Music Festival
Friday, 09 December 2011 11:42

This summer, the churches, vineyards and restaurants of the Mornington Peninsula will be filled with the glorious sounds of intimate chamber music, Bach cantatas, 18th century opera and balmy twilight jazz during the 5th Peninsula Summer Music Festival.

Under the artistic direction of Julia Fredersdorff, the 7-day festival offers something for everyone, with 14 events in Red Hill, Mornington, Moorooduc and Flinders, performed by over 40 musicians from Australia, New Zealand, Germany and the UK.

Highlights include:
• the first public performance in Australia of Johann Hasse’s 1725 masterpiece Antonio e Cleopatra featuring two female leads
• Abendmusik (4 January), a communal evening of music celebrating the splendour of the German baroque
• Brahms Revealed by Ironwood Chamber Ensemble, at the Festival’s newest venue, Moorooduc Estate
• the always-popular chamber music Recital Series

The 2012 program also includes the new “In conversation with…” series at Lindenderry, hosted by ABC Classic FM’s Christopher Lawrence. This intimate series delves into the minds of Festival artists Sally Whitwell, Greta Bradman and Neal Peres de Costa as they discuss the philosophy and inspiration behind their work.

Rounding out the festival is the ever-popular Twilight Jazz (9 January) with pianist Joe Chindamo and his Trio as the perfect way to end the 2012 Festival.
