The most famous four notes in music. Beethoven’s Fifth begins with terse grimness and ends in an exhilarating blaze of triumph.
Korngold’s Violin Concerto, when it was first performed, was derided for being too lush and too beautiful – very unfashionable in 1947! APO favourite Ning Feng gives this piece the gloriously sumptuous performance it deserves.
Dame Gillian Whitehead’s … the improbable ordered dance … was written for the APO in 2000, and won the SOUNZ Contemporary Award. Based on organic structures, it celebrates the urge of all living things to make music.
Featured non-Australian music: Korngold, Beethoven
