Three Piece Suite

Mountains regular “Three Piece Suite” returns to Blackheath Presbyterian Church on Sunday 15th October at 4pm.

The trio of Rachel Westwood (violin), Valmai Coggins (viola) and Deborah Coogan (cello) are in their fifth year of performance in Blackheath, continuing to provide the highest quality chamber music to appreciative mountain audiences.

To share the magic, the string trio celebrates the return of guest flautist James Fortune with an all-Mozart program. While sometimes rumoured to have disliked the flute, Mozart wrote his Flute Quartet in A major K 298 as a humorous and affectionate tribute to his friends. The mighty Divertimento in E flat major K 563 is the first significant piece ever written for string trio. Finally, enjoy some of the most popular tunes from the opera “The Magic Flute”, arranged in 1793 by Franz Heinrich Ehrenfried for flute and strings.

Since the last performance in March, cellist and music teacher Deborah Coogan has moved residence to beautiful Blackheath. Although she maintains a part-time presence in Sydney, the charms of mountain life have finally won her over.

After the concert, meet and mingle with the musicians over afternoon tea in the church hall.
