Presented by Melbourne Chamber Orchestra
A feast for lovers of Handel and an uplifting end to our musical year.
About this concert
When MCO Artistic Director William Hennessy and Polyphonic Voices Director Michael Fulcher came together to plan the next instalment in their collaboration, Handel’s exhilarating Dixit Dominus was right at the top of the list. With its vigorous orchestral writing and ornate, virtuosic vocal score, this thrilling Baroque landmark is rarely performed professionally in Australia. It’s a spectacle not to be missed.
Adorning the centrepiece, a concerto by Handel, Corelli’s Christmas concerto, the premiere season of Melbourne composer Matthew Laing’s Pantomime and a delicious Poulenc transcription.
Melbourne Recital Centre is committed to the safety of our artists, staff and patrons. As we reopen, a range of public health, hygiene and physical distancing measures will be in place. Click here to learn more.
