Lauded as “one of Australia’s most angelic-voiced sopranos” Sara Macliver is headed to Daylesford this month to dispense a feast of Italian music together with the Genesis Baroque ensemble.
Featuring works by Vivaldi, Scarlatti and Monteverdi, The Italian Tour performance will take place at Daylesford’s Christchurch Anglican Church on Saturday, October 22 at 5pm. It will mark a regional debut for the Melbourne-based Genesis Baroque ensemble which comprises some of Australia’s finest historically informed musicians.
The ensemble was founded by baroque violinist, Jennifer Kirsner, and is led by renowned baroque violinist and concertmaster, Lucinda Moon who is former concertmaster of the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra. The ensemble released its critically acclaimed first studio album of Arcangelo Corelli’s Concerti Grossi Opus 6 via ABC Classic in August 2020, debuting as the highest selling Australian album on the ARIA classical album charts.
Regarded as one of the leading exponents of Baroque repertoire, Sara Macliver records for ABC Classic and has more than 35 CDs and many awards to her credit. She is a regular performer with all the Australian symphony orchestras as well as the Perth, Melbourne and Sydney Festivals, Pinchgut Opera, the Australian Chamber Orchestra and Australian Brandenburg Orchestra, Musica Viva, and a number of international companies.
