Event details

As any script writer or gossip magazine editor will tell you, a rivalry is much more entertaining than a friendship.

So it is with the two composers Mozart and Salieri, whose relationship was mostly warm and collegial, despite film portrayals to the contrary.

On the Mozart side, we have the lighthearted Symphony No.28, and the Jeunehomme concerto, performed with one of Australia’s leading pianists, Hoang Pham. On the Salieri side, an Australian premiere of an opera overture and his La Veneziana symphony.

MCO violist and rising composer Matthew Laing is receiving plaudits from critics, musicians and audiences alike for his unique compositional voice. He contributes a new work to this program.
