This event takes place at Hawthorn Arts Centre
Star pianist David Fung joins MCO for two of Bach’s sparkling keyboard concertos, alongside music of Dvořák, Telemann and Bartók.
To hear Bach’s keyboard concertos is to witness the birth of a genre. Alternating bustling brio and the most heartfelt lyricism, Bach creates music that speaks across the centuries. Recently praised for his “simply gorgeous” playing and “crystalline phrasing” by the Washington Post, pianist David Fung is an ideal match for the immaculate poise and effortless dexterity these wonderful concertos require.
Béla Bartók’s Divertimento is one of the iconic works for chamber orchestra—an exhilarating showpiece, inflected with folk melodies and driving rhythms. An intriguing Telemann concerto for four violins and three heartfelt miniatures by Dvořák complete a concert of contrasts across the centuries.
