Brandenburg – Night in Versailles

Australian Brandenburg Orchestra 2024

Presented by Australian Brandenburg Orchestra


Experience the harpsichord in a new light.

Treat yourself to a sumptuous sonic and visual palette of immersive theatrical staging inspired by Château de Versailles, and be awakened by the bold, rousing power of Baroque. Pure energy. Pure escapism. Pure delight.

Suspend your imagination and be rewarded with a captivating sensory experience. In an ode to the harpsichord brought to life within a crystalline chamber of wonder and colour, next-generation French soloist Justin Taylor will dazzle/glisten/sparkle in his Australian debut.

As always on the Brandenburg stage, it’s the mercurial blend of personalities and special guests that make us shine, and Night in Versailles promises to be no different. ABO welcome you to experience the Concerto for 4 harpsichords in a new light as Justin Taylor is joined by three generations of established Australian instrumentalists: Anthony Abouhamad, Neal Peres Da Costa, and the Brandenburg’s own Artistic Director Paul Dyer in a triumphant display of unity, collaboration and warmth of the Australian spirit

Immerse, reflect, be dazzled. Shine with us.
