Classical Vienna

MCO Classical Vienna

Presented by Melbourne Chamber Orchestra


Let’s take a voyage to Vienna, the European capital of music making for hundreds of years.

We’ll hear music by four composers who lived and worked in Vienna at the same time, and even played in a quartet together in the 1780s.

MCO is joined by two expert tour guides for our musical travels through space and time. Pianist Stefan Cassomenos will take us to visit exquisite, rarely-heard concertos by Mozart & Haydn; and Zoe Black, one of Australia’s leading violinists and directors, joins the orchestra to guest-direct the Australian premieres of dramatic symphonies by Vanhal and Dittersdorf.

Melbourne Chamber Orchestra is a Key Presenting Partner at Melbourne Recital Centre. For more information on the Centre’s Key Presenting Partners see here.
