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 light-hearted 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.

MCO violist and rising composer Matthew Laing is receiving plaudits from critics, musicians and audiences alike for his unique compositional voice. He contributes a new work to this program.

SALIERI Don Chisciotte: Overture
MOZART Piano Concerto in E flat major K271 Jeunehomme
SALIERI Sinfonia in D major La Veneziana
MOZART Symphony No 28 in C major K200
