Next week, Lloyd Van’t Hoff gives A Mad Tea-Party another airing, this time at the Port Fairy Spring Music Festival. I hear it’s sold out! The work was originally written in 2009, during my undergrad days. Lloyd and I revised the piece in March for the Four Winds Festival, trying out some new electronic sounds (for 2018). It’s the opener to Mozart’s Clarinet Quintet, so no pressure or anything!

Saturday 13th October, 3:30 PM, St John’s Church
Mozart’s beloved Clarinet Quintet is brought to life by ABC Young Performer of the Year, Lloyd Van’t Hoff with the Flinders Quartet. This sunniest of works is the epitome of lyricism and charm, especially in such assured musical hands. To open the concert, Lloyd’s more virtuosic and playful side is given free rein in Australian composer Holly Harrison’s exuberant and witty A Mad Tea-Party, one of her many brilliant works inspire by Carroll’s ‘Alice in Wonderland‘
