Southbank, VIC 3006 Australia

One of the finest Australian conductors of his generation returns to ANAM to direct two symphonic masterpieces. It is hard not to listen in awe at the vast emotional range of Beethoven’s music, as he takes us from sorrow to joy, all the while overcoming phenomenal personal odds. The Fourth is a symphony of breathtaking lyricism, greatly admired by Berlioz and Schumann, and a perfect companion to Bruckner’s sublime song of spiritual ecstasy, his own Symphony no. 4. This is…

As musicologist Alberto Basso has put it: “The Mass in B minor is the consecration of a whole life.” The…

7 September @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm AEST
Melbourne Recital Centre, Elisabeth Murdoch Hall, Southbank, 31 Sturt Street
Southbank, VIC 3006 Australia

Sergei Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes changed the history of ballet and the history of music too. Stravinsky composed all of his early landmark ballet scores for Diaghilev’s company, including Petrushka. It’s all energy, lyricism, playfulness and pathos, wrapped up in kaleidoscopic orchestral colours; it doesn’t take much imagination to see Petrushka and the Ballerina in their fairground tale of love and jealousy. Romantic pursuit lies at the heart of de Falla’s El sombrero de tres picos also: the miller’s attractive young wife is being…
