Australian Haydn Ensemble | Midori & Mozart

Tickets: Adult $60 | Concession $50 | Under 30 $35 | Student $25
The daring and virtuosic Bavarian-Japanese violinist, Midori Seiler makes her Australian debut leading a program of Mozart and Haydn.
Midori Seiler is equally comfortable playing baroque violin concerti with orchestras such as Budapest Festival Orchestra or Tafelmusik, Toronto, as she is performing classical or romantic violin concerti with orchestras such as Anima Eterna, Concerto Köln or Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin.
Long-term concertmaster of Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin and Anima Eterna Brugge, she makes her Australian debut with the AHE as guest director and soloist in this dazzling season finale of Mozart and Haydn symphonies and concerti.
The program opens with Mozart’s bright and joyous Symphony No. 33. This is followed by his brilliant but lesser-known Violin Concerto No. 2 in D major showcasing Midori’s outstanding virtuosity and her poise in the beautiful slow movement.
In the second half of the program, Haydn’s Symphony No. 80 in D minor will provide plenty of Sturm and Drang. His virtuosic spirit shines through as we finish the year performing the Violin Concerto in C major.
“To me, the historical performance practice of post-baroque times is a field that has not yet been sufficiently developed. To explore it, with the treasure-trove of knowledge of previous times in my luggage, is extremely fascinating.” – Midori Seiler
