Details

Wind down and relax in the company of ACO Collective for a night of perennial favourites.

Mozart’s and Dvořák’s most famous serenades, both written explicitly for evening performance, are followed by a nocturne, literally “for night time”. But far from putting you to sleep, this is a concert of intriguing depth as well as hypnotic beauty and lilting tenderness.

Mozart’s Eine Kleine Nachtmusik is complex and ever-shifting, defying its apparent simplicity, while Dvořak’s lyrical Serenade is “pure goodness”.

Your evening culminates with one of the ACO’s favourite living composers, Latvian Pēteris Vasks. His intensely luminous violin concerto, Distant Light, is a perfect finale to this nighttime adventure.

Presented by Australian Chamber Orchestra
