MCO Salon Sessions - Brio & Passion

Brio and Passion


Wherein lies the genius of Mozart? In his fifth quintet, it’s the harmony of oppositions: charm meets brio, the profound rubs shoulders the light-hearted.

With boundless invention, Mozart finds perfect balance and makes perfection seem utterly effortless. From its triumphant opening cello solo to its glistening finale, Brahms’ second string quintet is a opulent dose of lustrous, unabashed Romanticism. Surging forth with an ardour and warmth of humanity without equal, don’t miss this opportunity to catch the energy of this glorious masterpiece live.

This performance is part of Melbourne Chamber Orchestra’s Salon Sessions series. The Salon Sessions combine performances of iconic chamber music, gourmet canapés, premium wine, a pre-concert briefing and an opportunity to meet the artists post-performance. Attendance is limited to 65 guests.
