Mozart & The Classical Age

For this program, we bring together three of the great Classical minds whose music epitomises the elegance, joy and clarity of this unmatched period of music history: Mozart, the young impresario taking Vienna by storm; Haydn, the father figure of the Classical period; and Kraus, the composer often called the “Swedish Mozart.”

Anna Goldsworthy enthralled audiences with her MCO debut in 2014 with her intensely satisfying performances of Mozart’s final piano concerto. For this concert, she joins the orchestra for two gems rarely heard on the Melbourne stage: Mozart’s sixth concerto, written at age 20, and the exuberant D major concerto of Haydn.

This concert will tour Victoria, supported by the Victorian Government through Touring Victoria and Regional Arts Victoria.
