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.

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

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,…
