PASTORAL MELODIES

Mendelssohn | Brahms | Mozart | Beethoven

Sydney Chamber Choir joins the Australian Romantic & Classical Orchestra for a journey into the landscapes of 18th and 19th century Europe. In Mozart’s delightful Spaur Mass we meet the composer in the full spring of youthful optimism, while the rich colours of autumn find Brahms in a more wistful mood in Five Songs for choir alone. With Mendelssohn’s Hebrides Overture and Beethoven’s Pastoral Symphony.

 OF MUSIC

James MacMillan | Peter Sculthorpe | Josquin des Prez | Cecilia McDowall | Dan Walker and more...

A musical voyage across the seas from Scotland and Finland to Australia, by way of watery depths, epic journeys, maritime disasters, and island magic between. In music both ancient and new – some never before heard in Australia – we evoke the mystery and majesty of the ocean, and the courage and tenacity of those who venture out across its vast expanses.
