South Melbourne, VIC 3205 Australia

TICKETS: Full $62 / Senior $48 / Concession* $35 / Under 30s* $25 This sonic spectacular for percussion and plural pianos includes four 20th century classics – works so dynamic they could have been written yesterday. Bartók’s fascination for the combination of keyboards and percussion reached its climax in this Sonata. The Rite of Spring, too, has lost none of its power since its riotous premiere in 1913, and this fascinating arrangement throws new light on the score’s visceral rhythmic…

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…

Bach B Minor Mass – ANAM

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

ANAM Presents: Petrushka

7 September @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm AEST

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…

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,…
