Melbourne Chamber Orchestra: Woven Threads

March 12, 2023 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm

For her first orchestral concert as MCO’s artistic director, Sophie Rowell invites you to revel in the power and possibilities of the string orchestra.

We start with the majesty and eloquence of Bach — a single strand of sound that unfolds into a miniature universe. And we end with Sophie as soloist, in the dazzling youthful Mendelssohn Concerto in D minor.

In between, we weave together through time and place, tracing rich connections on three continents in four centuries. We thread together Melody Eötvös’ Meraki, inspired by a Greek word meaning to perform with soul, creativity and love; a musical firework by American genius Coleridge Perkinson; a dash of theatrical Mozart; and a love letter to Tchaikovsky.

Thursday 9 March 7.30pm & Sunday 12 March 2023 2:30pm; Elisabeth Murdoch Hall;  Duration: 2 hours (incl. interval)
