On his way to fight at Gallipoli, the young Australian composer Frederkick Septimus Kelly lost a close friend: poet Rupert Brooke. His musical response was deeply personal and achingly poignant; one can almost hear the quiet rustling of olive leaves that shade his friend’s grave.
Two lovers share their secrets in the glow of the moonlight. Schoenberg captures the gamut of their emotions in his dark, atmospheric and ravishingly beautiful tone poem, a masterpiece of late Romanticism.
The prodigious genius of the young Mozart is on full display in his Fourth Symphony, written at the age of nine and full of youthful exuberance.
Featured non-Australian music: Mozart, Schoenberg
