Mannheim Rocket

Sun 12 May 6.30pm, 2019

Mannheim Rocket transports listeners back to the explosive birth of the modern symphonic style of Mannheim in the late 18th-century. The then cutting-edge orchestral sinfonias of Stamitz and Richter were simultaneously energetic and sensuous, and were a significant influence on the young Mozart, who was later at the epicentre of the Classical Viennese style. His fifth violin concerto – nicknamed the Turkish and performed by Rachael Beesley – inhabits a hazy world of love and intrigue, and the finale of Mozart’s Symphony No.40 contains the most famous ascending musical rocket of all.

A Voyage Of Musical Discovery 2

Tue 14 May 3pm, 2019

Presented in tandem with Mannheim Rocket, A Voyage of Musical Discovery 2 has the orchestra share the stage with Australia’s renowned flautist Jane Rutter and the musicians of her Third Culture World Music Ensemble. Together they provide live examples and explanations of different ‘Cultural & Historical Contexts’ in the composition and performance of music spanning the early-Classical European and Australian contemporary and Chinese periods.
