Mozart & Mendelssohn



Mostly Mozart is an hour of wonderful music and the chance to catch up with friends over a cup of tea with classical masterpieces performed in the acoustic beauty of Elisabeth Murdoch Hall with musicians from the Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM) and guests.

Both Mozart and Mendelssohn were child prodigies, and each went on to write some of the most astonishingly brilliant music of their times. In the hands of Mozart, two pianos combine as one voice, a scintillating combination of 176 keys creating one unified and sublime sound world.

Mendelssohn’s Octet is an acclaimed masterpiece, one of the most joyous chamber works in the repertoire. Effectively two string quartets joined together, this is a celebration of string sound, with eight virtuoso musicians working together to create a unified whole.
