Members of Melbourne Chamber Orchestra | Beethoven Quintets

3 December 2020 @ 8:30 pm - 9:30 pm AEDT

This concert is live streamed by Melbourne Digital Concert Hall

Same composer, same five instruments, two completely different moods. MCO completes its 250th anniversary homage to Beethoven with both of Beethoven’s String Quintets. The C minor quintet finds Beethoven in his favourite, Symphony No 5-esque stormy key, for an epic transcription of his first piano trio. The contrasting C major trio is young Beethoven at his sunniest, charming best. A brilliant quintet of MCO musicians is led by MCO’s Artistic Director, William Hennessy AM.
