Melbourne Chamber Orchestra brings the elegance of eighteenth century Vienna to the fore in music by Mozart, Haydn, Vanhal & Dittersdorf.
Let’s take a voyage to Vienna, the European capital of music making for hundreds of years. We’ll hear music by four composers who lived and worked in Vienna at the same time, and even played in a quartet together in the 1780s.
To start their 2022 Monash season, Melbourne Chamber Orchestra is joined by two expert tour guides for our musical travels through space and time.
Pianist Stefan Cassomenos will take us to visit exquisite, rarely-heard concertos by Mozart & Haydn; and Zoe Black, one of Australia’s leading violinists and directors, joins us to guest-direct the Australian premieres of dramatic symphonies by Vanhal & Dittersdorf.
