An evening of the finest classical music from Mozart to Haydn alongside new commissions from composer and pianist of indie rock band The Jezebels.
The Australian Chamber Orchestra is renowned the world over for embracing celebrated classics alongside new commissions. They will team up with Australia’s most talented emerging string players to create a high-energy, 17-piece string orchestra known as the ACO Collective in their new concert, Mozart, Haydn & More.
Two new works have been commissioned by Australian composer and pianist of indie rock band, The Jezebels, Heather Shannon for the concert where they will premiere alongside classical music.
A unique program has been built for the concert by ACO Collective’s Finnish Artistic Director and violist Pekka Kuusisto, who brings international fame and a wicked sense of humour to all his work. Featured in the program is Haydn’s Symphony No. 47 in G Major – Haydn was no stranger to humour himself and this symphony is nicknamed “The Palindrome” as it has been written with the second half a backwards version of the first half.
