The Mimir Chamber Music Festival returns to its second home at the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music, giving audiences the opportunity to experience some of the world's finest chamber musicians in action.

This concert will include:

  • Stephen Rose (Violin), Jun Iwasaki (Violin), Joan DerHovsepian (Viola) and Brant Taylor (Cello) performing Hugo Wolf's (1860–1903) Italian Serenade in G Major, WW XV/3.

  • Curt Thompson (Violin), Joan DerHovsepian (Viola), Brant Taylor (Cello), Robert Nairn (Double bass) and Benjamin Martin (Piano) performing Ralph Vaughan Williams' (1872–1958) Piano Quintet in C minor.

  • Jun Iwasaki (Violin), Stephen Rose (Violin), Joan DerHovsepian (Viola) and Brant Taylor (Cello) present Antonín Dvorák's (1841–1904) String Quartet in G Major, Op. 106.

Mimir Festival founder and executive director, violinist Curt Thompson, reflects on Mimir's success and a life lived in music; “…some of my favourite moments are the rare opportunities to sit in the audience when I’m not playing in a particular piece, and to hear what this incredible group of musicians can create. Knowing I had a small part in putting them together to share this experience with a hall full of people is truly a privilege.” Read more on Precinct: http://go.unimelb.edu.au/23i6
