A new commission by the Maroondah Symphony Orchestra by well-known local composer David Keeffe opens this concert. Mozart wrote his last four violin concertos in the same year when he was 19. His sparkling final violin concerto features some vaguely oriental rhythms (actually Hungarian!) in the last movement that gave it its nickname. Brahms’ brooding 4th symphony provides a stark contrast with its sense of yearning for something unattainable.
