Free Lunchtime Concert

Be transported from the everyday by our free lunchtime concert series, featuring the best musical talent from within the UWA Conservatorium of Music and around the country.

The Irwin Street Collective | Beethoven Sonata Project

Celebrated UWA music staff Cecilia Sun (fortepiano) and Simon Lee Foundation Artist in Residence Shaun Lee-Chen (violin) will present some of Beethoven’s classic violin sonatas.

In this free Lunchtime Concert they will play Beethoven's Sonata in Eb (Op. 12 no. 3) and Mozart's Sonata in G (K. 379). 

About the Irwin Street Collective: Formed in 2018, the Irwin Street Collective is a performance group of UWA Conservatorium of Music staff, alumni, current students and distinguished scholars who research and perform historical or traditional styles of music.

Aiming to enrich the Australian musical community through interaction with leaders in this area, the Collective draws insight from the study of historical treatises and early recordings to create performances on period instruments.

Historical music research can revitalise centuries-old repertoire by enabling performers to craft interpretations that best represent the musical aesthetics and performance practices of the times when the pieces were new, significant and, at times, avant-garde.
