Let Richard Gill be your guide as he unpacks the Haydn Variations, which takes a hymn tune as its starting point and uses one of Brahms' favourite strategies – variation form – to build something utterly magnificent.

The Greenway Series (formerly the Conductors’ Series), named in honour of the original architect of the Conservatorium building, is our premier orchestral program and provides an opportunity for talented young musicians to present classical masterpieces through to new and exciting works.
Mozart composed a double concerto for flute and harp for the Comte de Guines – a favourite of Marie Antoinette and a fine flautist. With its poetic, serene second movement and glorious shades of colour from the rarely heard period harp, this rarely performed piece has become a truly beloved Mozart work. Then get ready for Mozart’s last symphony. The mythological name Jupiter symbolises the classical deity and virtues of strength and wisdom. It is a triumphant and exciting masterpiece, and the final coda of the Jupiter Symphony is a miracle! Something very special indeed to celebrate the 25th year of the Brandenburg.
