Richard Gill has designed a program that unites three of his passions: music, education, and new creativity. It journeys across three centuries to show how one genre – the concerto – emerged in the baroque period, was transformed in the 19th century and now reshapes its heritage for today.
The music itself ranges from the magnificence of Handel in a concerto for the orchestra principals to the warm emotion of Dvŏrák’s much-loved Romantic masterpiece, and beyond to a brand new work, Lightfall, commissioned from leading screen composer Christopher Gordon.
Featured non-Australian music: Handel, Dvorak
