Music inspired by romance, created with love, and presented with passion, LOVE: WEBER AND FRANCK is next for the Omega Ensemble.

Where words have failed, music has been the language of friends, lovers and admirers from afar.

From Franck’s endearing Sonata for Violin and Piano, composed for and performed at a friend’s wedding to Elgar’s lyrical Romance for Bassoon and Strings, these are works created out of great love, filled with passion, tenderness and musical friendship.

Also featured in the program is young-blood clarinettist (and winner of the Young Performer of the Year Awards in 2015) Lloyd Van’t Hoff who will be joining Co-Artistic Director David Rowden in a performance of Australian composer Gerard Brophy’s new work ‘We Two Boys Together Clinging.’
