Grandage All the World’s a Stage
Mozart Sinfonia Concertante for violin and viola
Classical meets contemporary when Australian composer Ian Grandage’s new work will be performed alongside works by Mozart and Brahms. Enjoy this intimate program curated and lead by Principal Violist Christopher Moore.
‘Arguably Mozart’s best concerto, Sinfonia Concertante has a bit of a twist for his favourite instrument, the viola (!). To say that the Serenade No.2 was simply Brahms warming up to write a symphony is mere folly. This rarely performed masterpiece is quintessential Brahms.’ Christopher Moore, Principal Viola.
