As any script writer or gossip magazine editor will tell you, a rivalry is much more entertaining than a friendship. So it is with the two composers Mozart and Salieri, whose relationship was mostly warm and collegial, despite film portrayals to the contrary.

On the Mozart side, we have the lighthearted Symphony No 28, and the Jeunehomme concerto, performed with one of Australia’s leading pianists, Hoang Pham. On the Salieri side, an Australian premiere of an opera overture and his La Veneziana symphony.

We also premiere an intriguing MCO commission by Victorian composer Louisa Trewartha, for double bass and string orchestra. MCO Principal Bass Emma Sullivan performs the solo. “
