Christopher and the MSO will also be performing this program at Monash on Friday 12 October at Robert Blackwood Hall.
Christopher Moore viola
Sophie Rowell violin
Brahms Serenade No.2
Grandage All the World’s a Stage – World Premiere
Mozart Sinfonia Concertante for violin and viola
Classical meets contemporary when Australian composer Iain Grandage’s new work will be performed alongside works by Mozart and Brahms. Enjoy this intimate program curated and lead by Principal Violist Christopher Moore.
‘Arguably Mozart’s best concerto, Sinfonia Concertante has a bit of a twist for his favourite instrument, the viola (!). To say that the Serenade No.2 was simply Brahms warming up to write a symphony is mere folly. This rarely performed masterpiece is quintessential Brahms.’ Christopher Moore, Principal Viola.
Pre-concert Talk: Join composer, Lisa Cheney for a pre-concert conversation inside the Elisabeth Murdoch Hall at 6.30pm.
Running Time: 1 hour and 40 minutes, including a 20-minute interval
