Rhapsodic Bohemians

MCO_2022 Rhapsodic Bohemian_717x437.jpg

Presented by Melbourne Chamber Orchestra


A double dose of Dvořák and the ferociously brilliant Feld flute concerto, with the legendary Prudence Davis on flute.

About the concert

Passionate, melodic, filled with drama and pathos: the music of Czech composers is always enthralling listening.

No Czech composer is more famous than Dvořák, and for these concerts, we feature his miniature for cello and orchestra, Silent Woods, and an opulent orchestral arrangement of his second String Quintet.

In between, one of the most exciting works of the flute concerto repertoire and one of Australia’s most exciting flautists. Jindřich Feld’s concerto was recognised as a masterpiece from its first performance and remains the composer’s most-played work. Don’t miss us as we are joined by legendary MSO Principal Flute Prudence Davis for this special concerto event.

Australian-born violinist Alexandra Osborne has carved out an impressive career on both sides of the Pacific, since winning the String category of the Symphony Australia Young Performer Awards in 1999. She returns to Australia from the US to guest-direct this performance for MCO.
