Zelman Symphony Orchestra - Beethoven's First

  • Hawthorn Arts Centre 360 Burwood Road Hawthorn, VIC, 3122 Australia (map)

Enjoy a concert encompassing the full range of Romantic era.

Zelman Symphony Orchestra start and finish with works of Beethoven - the Coriolan Overture which expresses the drama in the story of the Roman general Coriolanus, and the First Symphony, which despite its classical form was huge leap from those of Mozart and Haydn, and which alerted Vienna to the genius of the young Beethoven.

In between they will feature Jack Schiller, Principal Bassoon with the MSO, who is to play the crowd favourite Weber Concerto, explore one of Wagner's few miniatures, Siegfried Idyll, originally written for the birthday of his wife, Cosima, and introduce the world premiere of a new work by Luke Hutton, the 2017 Zelman Symphony / University of Melbourne Emerging Composer.

Mark Shiell will present a pre-concert talk in the auditorium commencing 7.30pm.
