Melbourne Chamber Orchestra – Light & Shade

April 18 @ 7:30 pm - 9:15 pm

Event Series Event Series (See All)
$30 – $140

Music enriches our lives with its incredible array of moods, textures and timbres.

Sophie Rowell has curated this program of vivid colours and strong contrasts, to showcase the versatility of Melbourne Chamber Orchestra. The vigour of CPE Bach rubs shoulders with the intimate Romanticism of Ukrainian composer Valentin Silvestrov; the upbeat energy of Yuin composer Brenda Gifford is juxtaposed with the lush soundworld of Edward Elgar.

Nigel Westlake is one of Australia’s most captivating composers. To finish this concert, MCO is thrilled to perform the world premiere of the chamber version of his Trumpet Concerto. From gentle lyrical passages to exhilarating virtuosic moments, this concerto traverses a kaleidoscope of colours — it is Nigel at his glorious best. MCO’s soloist is the young Principal Trumpet of the MSO, Owen Morris, a dazzling superstar of the instrument. This promises to lift the roof off!
