Australian Romantic & Classical Orchestra | Poetical Melodies
19 August 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm AEST$30 – $95
“What I actually felt coming off the stage was a bold and unanimous gesture; an ensemble saying, ‘Listen to this. This is what we made.’ It was wonderful.” HARRIET CUNNINGHAM
The sublime string section of the Australian Romantic & Classical Orchestra takes centre stage in this program, to explore the Poetical Melodies of the Romantic period on gut strings, delving into works by Mendelssohn, Grieg, Van Bree, Puccini and Dvořák.
Directed by violinist Rachael Beesley, this concert highlights the rich and expressive qualities of the 19th-century historically informed performance style.
