MCO Orchestral Series | Passionate Romantics

11 March 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm AEDT

This concert is live streamed on Melbourne Digital Concert Hall

Melbourne Chamber Orchestra brings to life the virtuosity of Romantic string writing with one of the great icons of music for string orchestra and a mighty violin concerto.

Dvořák’s Serenade is a beloved showpiece with the loving detail of the composer’s renowned quartets, and the drama of his symphonies. Glazunov was a Russian contemporary of Dvořák and his Violin Concerto is a staple of the virtuoso violinist’s repertoire.

Ukrainian-Australian virtuoso Markiyan Melnychenko performs the show-stopping solo with MCO in a daring new arrangement for string orchestra by MCO collaborator Keith Crellin.
