Events in Melbourne

Monday 9th September 2019

Below is a list of events, markets, attractions and exhibitions occurring on this date. You may also wish to consult The White Hat Guide 20 Things To Do in Melbourne on a Monday.


Celebrating Mozart

Fireworks

 The Australian Chamber Orchestra with Richard Tognetti (director, violin solo) is joined by  Croatian-born Dejan Lazić (piano) to celbrate Mozart sand one of his formative influences, Joseph Haydn.

The program is bookended by two great symphonies in the “Sturm und Drang” style: Mozart’s Symphony No.25 and the work that directly influenced it, Haydn’s Symphony No.39 ‘Tempesta di mare’. A number of White Hat classical music newsletter subscribers have told us that hearing one of these two symphonies was what sparked their interest and love of classical music.

Mozart’s Violin Concerto No.3 is one of Richard Tognetti’s calling cards while Mozart’s Piano Concerto No.14 is considered the first of his mature concertos. In this program we hear it alongside Dejan’s original arrangement of the Allegretto grazioso from Mozart’s Piano Sonata K.333.

  • Haydn Symphony No.39 in G minor ‘Tempesta di mare’
  • Mozart Rondo Concertante (arr. Dejan Lazić) - Australian Premiere
  • Mozart Piano Concerto No.14 in E-flat major
  • Mozart Violin Concerto No.3 in G major
  • Mozart Symphony No.25 in G minor

This concert will be broadcast on ABC Classic on 15 September 2019.
