Seven soloists of the Australian Romantic & Classical Orchestra, from interstate and overseas for their Madness & Confrontation and Voyage of Musical Discovery orchestral concerts in late March in Sydney, will also perform a special chamber program.
The recitals, in Sydney, Bowral and Melbourne feature members of the orchestra, based in Queensland, Victoria, NSW, England and Belgium!
A new era of virtuosity on wind instruments swept through late 18th-century Europe, and Giovanni Punto and François Devienne dazzled listeners with their compositions as well as their playing skill. In historically informed performances (HIP) on authentic reproductions of instruments of the day, the soloists of the Australian Romantic & Classical Orchestra invite you to discover these remarkable musical treats, in the company of one of Beethoven’s most beloved chamber works.
The final and dearest legacy of the beloved late Australian music legend Richard Gill AO, the Australian Romantic & Classical Orchestra has become a musical force to be reckoned with! Boasting an annual concert subscription series, countless chamber concerts and a host of active education programs, the orchestra’s work has been lauded by audiences and critics alike.
