Violinist Midori Seiler has been invited by the Australian Haydn Ensemble’s Artistic Director Skye McIntosh as Guest Director and soloist in a dazzling season finale of Mozart and Haydn symphonies and concerti.
Making her Australian debut with the AHE, Midori Seiler is long-term concertmaster of Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin and Anima Eterna Brugge. She is equally comfortable playing baroque violin concerti with orchestras such as Budapest Festival Orchestra or Tafelmusik, Toronto, as she is performing classical or romantic violin concerti with orchestras such as Anima Eterna, Concerto Köln or Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin.
The program opens with Mozart’s joyous Symphony No. 33, followed by his brilliant but lesser-known Violin Concerto No. 2 in D major showcasing Midori’s outstanding virtuosity and her poise in the beautiful slow movement.
In the second half of the program, Haydn’s Symphony No. 80 in D minor will provide plenty of Sturm and Drang. His virtuosic spirit shines through as the ensemble finishes the year performing the Violin Concerto in C major.
Program: Mozart Symphony No. 33 in B flat major K. 319/Mozart Violin Concerto No. 2 in D major K. 211/Haydn Symphony No. 80 in D minor/Haydn Violin Concerto in C major Hob VII:a1
Tickets: $35 – $85
