nipaluna/Hobart Lunchbox Concerts Spring #2: Gryphon Baryton Trio

Event description

The immensely popular lunchtime concert series returns to the Hobart Town Hall for five more fabulous concerts!

Curated by VDB’s Artistic Director, Julia Fredersdorff, our 2024 series showcases some of lutruwita/Tasmania's finest musical talent, alongside interstate and international guests, in an eclectic program of music spanning a rich variety of genres and styles. 

Escape the hustle and bustle and step into an oasis of calm listening to beautiful music in the glorious surrounds of the Hobart Town Hall Ballroom.

Tuesday 27 August - Gryphon Baryton Trio

Australia's only baryton returns for its second-ever performance in lutruwita/Tasmania! This superb program features chamber works by Joseph Haydn, performed with their intended instrumentation. The baryton is a rare and unusual instrument (like a viola da gamba with sympathetic strings) which caused a sensation in the 18th Century Esterházy court, only to disappear again 30 years later. 

Laura Vaughan (baryton) joins Katie Yap (viola) and Martin Penicka (cello) for a Lunchbox full of invention and colour, with a veritable feast of low instruments creating unique and beautiful sonority.
