BROADSTOCK Never Truly Lost (World Premiere)
MOZART Symphony No.21
MOZART Clarinet Concerto
Satu Vänskä (lead violin), Martin Fröst (clarinet), Australian Chamber Orchestra
Martin Fröst is probably the greatest clarinettist in the world, but more than that, he's a marvellous communicator and fantastic to watch. Astonishingly, he can dance while he plays, and his brother's new work has him performing as a marionette! Martin Fröst's recording of Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto was named the best in the world by specialist magazine Classica-Repertoire, and his performance has been watched more than half a million times on YouTube – testament to the popularity of both musician and work.
Satu Vänskä also leads music from her homeland Finland, by Einojuhani Rautavaara, and plays Paganini-inspired music on the Australian Chamber Orchestra's Stradivarius violin. The Australian world premiere in the program is Brenton Broadstock's new work, Never Truly Lost.
Featured non-Australian music: Fröst, Denisov, Mozart
