The opening of Mozart's Eine kleine Nachtmusik is one of the most instantly recognisable themes of all time, enchanting audiences since 1787. After this divine concert opener, TMO is thrilled to welcome Claire Edwardes to the stage, recognised throughout the world as one of the most striking and important percussionists of her generation, performing the world premiere of Daniel Rojas's Chamber Concerto for Marimba and Orchestra. Typical to Rojas's Latin-infected rhythmic music, this fresh and opulent concerto promises to have you dancing and swooning at the edge of your seat.
Finishing this program is Haydn's masterwork, his Symphony no 104 (London). Its spirited finale will provide the perfect end to this vibrant concert.
Featured non-Australian music: Mozart, Haydn
