• Bendigo Chamber Music Festival

Overview

Welcome to the inaugural Bendigo Chamber Music Festival. This new festival will bring world class chamber musicians from around the world and Australia to Bendigo for 14 concerts between February 5th and 9th in 2020. 

We are excited to say that we have the musicians of the Chamber Orchestra of Europe as the artists in residence at the festival! A real coup for the festival and Australia! Much loved Australian musicians such as Stefan, Daniel de borah, Sophie Rowell and Andrew Goodwin will also be taking part. We are also showcasing some series young talent with ANAM alumni Lily Higson- Spence and the Australian Youth Orchestra giving recitals. 
Throughout the program we will present extraordinary masterworks such as Mozart’s Clarinet Quintet, Beethoven’s Second Symphony, and Schubert’s “Trout" piano quintet. They will stand alongside some remarkable lesser known gems and works that showcase the dynamic and benchmark COE interpretative style, honed over decades of collaboration with artists such as Abbado, Harnoncourt, Sandor Vegh, Haitink and Andras Schiff.

BCMF will also welcome Camberwell Choral, Adelaide Harmony and Bendigo Chamber Choir to the festival, who will feature alongside Merlyn Quaife and the COEmusicians at the Saturday afternoon concert. There are also free events to be enjoyed by the whole community including masterclasses and cushion concerts.
