Madness & Confrontation

Sun 24 March 6.30pm, 2019

Madness & Confrontation recounts the story of Richard Gill AO conducting Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro (based on the original play Day of Madness) who, with concertmaster Rachael Beesley and principal clarinettist Nicole van Bruggen, had the idea of establishing the Australian Romantic & Classical Orchestra. Along with a selection of duets and arias from Figaro, Mozart’s well-known clarinet concerto is performed by Nicole van Bruggen on basset clarinet – the original instrument for which the work was written. Beethoven's magnificent 5th Symphony ushered classical music into a new era and its infamous opening four-note motif confronts and enthrals audiences even to this day.

A Voyage Of Musical Discovery 1

Wed 27 March 3pm, 2019

Presented in tandem with Madness & Confrontation, A Voyage of Musical Discovery 1 invites three of Australia’s most exceptional vocalists to join the orchestra on stage – Lior, Jacqueline Porter and David Greco. Together they provide live examples and explanations of the methods of composers and performers when negotiating ‘Phrasing & Form’ in Mozart, Beethoven and in Australian contemporary works.
