Indelible masterpieces from four great Romantic composers.


Be transported into the vivid emotional worlds of the Romantics, with the mercurial joy of Mendelssohn’s Italian Symphony, a glimpse of tragedy from Verdi’s La Traviata, and the exquisite tenderness of Dvořák’s rarely-performed Romance.

For his only piano concerto, Schumann rewrote the rule book, bringing orchestra and soloist into a profound dialogue inspired by chamber music. To perform the concerto with MCO, we welcome Russian pianist Konstantin Shamray, winner of the 2008 Sydney International Piano Competition of Australia.

VERDI La Traviata: Act III Overture
