Mozart and the Classical Age
Thursday, June 14, 2018
7:30 PM
Mozart and the Classical Age
Melbourne Chamber Orchestra

Mozart and the Classical Age brings together three of the great Classical minds whose music epitomises the elegance, joy and clarity of this unmatched period of music history: Kraus, the Swedish composer sometimes called the "Swedish Mozart"; Mozart, the young impresario taking Vienna by storm; and Haydn, the father figure of the Classical period.

Anna Goldsworthy enthralled audiences with her MCO debut in 2014 with her intensely satisfying performances of Mozart's final piano concerto. For this concert, she joins the orchestra for two gems rarely heard on the Melbourne stage: Mozart's sixth concerto, written at the age 20, and the exuberant D major concerto of Haydn.

Adult: $40 Concession: $35 Under 16s/ Student: $20 Family: $100
Duration: 2 hours including interval.

Middle sister Meg, marries to an Englishman and residing in London, is a successful writer whose latest book is a semi-autobiographical and short-listed for the Booker prize.
