Melbourne Recital Centre, Elisabeth Murdoch Hall, Southbank, 31 Sturt Street
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…

Southbank, VIC 3006 Australia

A comment under a YouTube video can speak more directly than an elegantly written program note. About Bach’s B minor Mass, one user has written: “Probably the best piece of music EVER written, and I’m not even exaggerating, I’m being serious.” Completed the year before Bach’s death, the Mass is one of the most inspiring pieces of music ever composed. As musicologist Alberto Basso has put it: “The Mass in B minor is the consecration of a whole life.” The…

Like many wealthy young Europeans of his day, Mendelssohn travelled widely and found musical inspiration on many of his journeys (think of that expressive musical picture, The Hebrides). One country brought him particular pleasure: “This is Italy! And now has begun what I have always thought... to be the supreme joy in life.” Inspired by his sojourn there, the Italian Symphony is sunshine and Chianti in music. Mendelssohn is one of the most frequently performed classical composers of them all, whereas Gideon…

Tickets: $25-$95 Berlin-based violinist Jakob Lehmann leads an ensemble of specialist local and international chamber musicians through the expansive sounds and pioneering ideas of New Constellations. The Octet for Strings was written when Mendelssohn was just 16, and illustrates the transformation of performance techniques in the chamber music of the early-Romantic period. Brahms destroyed the nonet version of his Serenade, but based on archives and written accounts, Alan Boustead has brought this original chamber version back to life. “This was…

ANAM Presents: Petrushka

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…

ANAM Presents: The Italian Sound

4 October @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm AEST
South Melbourne Town Hall, ANAM, South Melbourne, 210 Bank Street
South Melbourne, VIC 3205 Australia

Umberto Clerici, the Sydney Symphony Orchestra’s Principal Cello, has created this fascinating program, which asks, in his words: “What can be considered an ‘Italian Sound’? Does it come from the precious old Italian string instruments or from the long tradition of opera and bel canto that made Italian music famous around the world?” In exploring this question, Clerici will look at three centuries of music, taking in a jewel of the Italian baroque by Vivaldi, the string quartet Verdi composed…

Gábor Takács-Nagy is the complete musician; a founding member of the Takács Quartet, he has gone on to become an inspirational conductor and teacher of chamber music performance. In this sumptuous concert, he directs ANAM musicians in a banquet of music from one of the golden ages of music in Vienna. Mozart composed his miraculous Symphony no. 25 when he was just 17; Haydn’s jubilant Symphony no. 90 on the other hand, is a product of the composer’s rich maturity,…
