Australian composer Brett Dean received one of the world’s most prestigious composition prizes, the Grawemeyer Award, for his violin concerto, so we await his electric violin concerto for Richard Tognetti with much anticipation.
The opportunity to hear Richard Tognetti perform one of Mozart’s enchanting, theatrical violin concertos is not to be missed. Tognetti’s Mozart recordings have been singled out by critics internationally as arguably the best on offer. “Tognetti and his fellow musicians bring this music to life in ways I hadn’t previously imagined.” MusicWeb International “I can think of few other recordings of these pieces that so consistently grab the listener’s attention.” International Record Review Mozart's Symphony No.25 is the dramatic opening music in the film Amadeus and was inspired by Haydn's thrilling Sturm und Drang symphonies, such as No.49.
Featured non-Australian music: HAYDN Symphony No.49, “La passione”, MOZART Violin Concerto No.3, MOZART Symphony No.25
