Famed in his lifetime as a gifted composer, remarkable pianist and improviser beyond compare, Mozart is the quintessential example of a musical polymath. In this wonderfully varied program, the ASO is joined by a musician of similarly wide-ranging gifts. Australian composer and conductor Brett Dean, former violist with the Berlin Philharmonic, brings a deep understanding to the Austro-Germanic repertoire.
A special treat is Mozart’s rarely-performed Masonic Funeral Music, a small jewel written for the funeral of two of Mozart’s friends and fellow Masons. Mozart and Haydn’s symphonies are paired with Dean’s own lively, gravity-defying The Siduri Dances, brought to life by ASO Principal Flute, Geoffrey Collins.
Featured non-Australian music: Mozart, Haydn
