Event Details

The National Capital Orchestra, conducted by Leonard Weiss, is one of Canberra's finest community orchestras. Their latest concert offering, Passion & Power, brings a wonderful selection of music, including the world premiere of an orchestral work by Sally Greenaway, titled The Blue Mountains. Program: Dvorak: Symphony No.7 Tchaikovsky: The Tempest Tchaikovsky: Nutcracker Suite Greenaway: The Blue Mountains (world premiere).

Greenaway's work, The Blue Mountains, was written in 2010 whilst she was living in London studying at the Royal College of Music. The composer writes: '...The piece is inspired by the incredible landscape and beauty of the Blue Mountains in NSW. The opening moments from the strings describe the first light touching the far reaches of the mountains. It eventually evolves into a soaring melody when the valleys and mountains are fully drenched in the warmth of the sun, and the full beauty and of the scenery becomes a sight to behold.'

Featured non-Australian music: Dvorak, Tchaikovsky
