Presented by Melbourne Chamber Orchestra
While still in his teens, Mozart was appointed concertmaster in the Prince-Archbishop of Salzburg’s orchestra.
It was during this appointment, in 1775, that he penned all five of his violin concertos. The fourth concerto is an effervescent favourite of violinists and audiences, infused with Mozart’s effortless operatic sense of melody. To perform it, we are joined by violinist Sophie Rowell.
MCO continues its survey of Haydn’s extraordinary symphonic legacy with a rare performance of his dramatic Symphony No.52, which we’ve nicknamed The Grandfather.
Melbourne Recital Centre is committed to the safety of our artists, staff and patrons. When we reopen, a range of public health, hygiene and physical distancing measures will be in place. Click here to learn more.
