    It is thrilling that the Adelaide Festival is now able to present work in Australia’s most magnificent new concert hall: the UKARIA Cultural Centre (formerly Ngeringa) at the Mount Barker Summit. If you are yet to experience this magical place, in which the acoustics are as sublime as the hillside setting, come and bliss out for three hours – or three days if you like – and replenish your soul with superb music.

    This series of concerts takes inspiration from its venue, marrying the intimacy of chamber music to panoramic grandeur. The focus is Schubert and his restless traversal of inner and outer landscapes. Follow some of Australia’s most acclaimed musicians on these musical journeys, from the heartbreaking Winterreise to the transfiguring C Major Quintet and listen to how Australian composers respond to landscapes closer to home: a new song cycle by Calvin Bowman celebrating the austere beauty of South Australia and beautiful new works by indigenous artists Deborah Cheetham and William Barton composed while in residence at the site.

    Experience too, in close proximity, the ravishing sounds of historical instruments as Italy’s La Gaia Scienza present an all–Schubert program including the much–loved Trout Quintet.

“Miriam Gordon-Stewart’s... singing is gentle, full of love and hope and at the same time loud and lamenting, desperate and dramatic”

Operapoint

“The sustained nature of this musical menage-a-trois reveals itself in the ensemble’s absolute sonic cohesion and uniform musical maturity”
