Decades after its premiere, Richard Meale’s iconic opera Voss, based on Patrick White’s novel about a nineteenth-century explorer and his mystical connection with the outback, remains a landmark of Australian music. Shostakovich’s alternately melancholy and manically comic Piano Concerto No 1 is the perfect vehicle for Marc-André Hamelin’s kaleidoscopic versatility and the virtuosity of ASO Principal Trumpet, Shane Hooton. Beethoven’s Eroica stunned an unsuspecting public with its audacious new conception of symphonic form, and remains just as powerful today.
