Event Details

Richard Gill Presents - A Voyage of Musical Discovery is a unique concert series at the City Recital Hall in Sydney exploring Western art music. Across three concerts, Richard Gill AO and the world-class musicians of the Australian Romantic & Classical Orchestra seamlessly weave their passion for historical context into musical performance. Beloved works of the musical canon are revitalised through the sounds of period instruments and stylistically appropriate performance practice. Our vibrant journey is complemented by our guest ensembles, who perform music from Medieval through Jazz to Contemporary.
