The Australian Romantic & Classical Orchestra announces the 2022 season
The Australian Romantic & Classical Orchestra has announced its 2022 concert season!
The season will feature some of the finest music ever composed, from the salons of Vienna to the stages of Tin Pan Alley, from the damnation of Don Giovanni to the celestial grandeur of Jupiter.
For the Australian Romantic & Classical Orchestra’s 2022 concert season, they are embarking again on a multi-state season with additional concerts and educational programs to be announced throughout the year.
In addition to the main concert series, their education programs nurture and develop the next generation so that the company can continue to offer historical perspectives and ideas for many years to come. This year, the company will bring its insightful performance education programs to students and emerging musicians in more states across the country than ever before.
The first program for 2022, Northern Serenades, features exquisite and expressive string music written at the end of the 19th century. The works of Elgar, Wolf and Holst are among their most beloved, while Victor Herbert’s Serenade for Strings is an overlooked gem. And the richness of these pieces is completed by Australian composer Shauna Beesley’s arrangement of Schumann’s FantasiestÃ¼cke for clarinet and strings, commissioned for this tour and which is receiving its world premiere here.
In May, the orchestra will collaborate with Australian Boys Choir, The Vocal Consort and conductor Nicholas Dinopoulos for Austrian Encounters to present some of the best 19th century choral repertoires in Melbourne and Geelong.
Sounds of Vienna then takes us to the early 1800s, when Vienna was the epicenter of the music world. This dynamic and vibrant culture is perfectly represented by Joseph Eybler’s sparkling Quintet and the powerful and beloved Schubert Octet, an imposing work of chamber music in all its glory.
In August, the business will look to the stormy sky. Mozart’s Serenata Notturna was written for an open-air performance, with Jupiter, the subject of his last and great symphony, looking down. Far from Heaven is the carnal and tumultuous Don Giovanni, although the music is sublime, as is the twenty-third Piano Concerto, performed here by Neal Peres Da Costa.
