THE MAGIC HOUR:
REUNION

Sunset: Approximately 6.09pm

The great Hungarian pianist Sir András Schiff describes the International Musicians Seminar Prussia Cove as ‘a magical setting for music making’. Currently under the Artistic Direction of Steven Isserlis, this remote place on the Atlantic coast has offered sustenance and inspiration to musicians from all over the world. The relationships forged here are precious, rejuvenating, life changing.

Helena Rathbone, Principal Violin of the Australian Chamber Orchestra (ACO), was at Prussia Cove in 2008, where she met Scottish pianist Alasdair Beatson, and the two formed a deep musical connection.

Joining Helena and Alasdair are Christopher Moore (viola) and Timo-Veikko Valve (cello), who also share a special bond having played together in the ACO for over ten years. Mapping the complex relationships between composers who changed the course of Western art music, quartets by Fauré and Brahms are prefaced by masterpieces from two visionary women.
