Brunswick Beethoven Festival 2018

The Brunswick Beethoven Festival brings together internationally acclaimed performers for a festival of the finest classical chamber music in Brunswick, inner Melbourne - and for the lowest prices so that everybody can afford to come and hear these exceptional artists playing the great classical composers - Beethoven, Brahms, Bach, Mozart, Handel, Piazolla, Paganini, Elgar, Albinez, Chopin, Debussy and more.
The Festival, now in its 12th year under the musical directorship of Sergio de Pieri, featuring the following internationally recognised artists, classical guitarist Massimo Scattolin, flautist Andrea Dainese, harpist Elisabetta Ghebbioni, mezzo-sopranos Sally-ann Russell and Anna Smith, violinists Sara & Monica Curro, Helen Ayres, Erika Kennedy, Andrew Sords and David Saffir, cellists Josephine Vains, Timothy Nankervis and Dan Curro, Cristofori Piano - Jacqueline Ogeil, pianists Anna Goldsworthy, David Selig, Elyane Laussade, John O'Donnell and Stewart Kelly, clarinetist Phillip Arkinstall and theorbist Samantha Cohen.
And there is a lot more, including a favourite of the Festival – Australia’s Stefan Cassomenos, recognised because of his masterful playing – a favourite with Kawai Australia who provides the Shigeru concert grand piano for the Festival.
There is something for everyone in the Brunswick Beethoven Festival.
