Melbourne Chamber Orchestra: Octet - Stravinsky, Haydn, Mendelssohn

"Join MCO for a dazzling concert filled with brilliant, virtuosic music for strings.

The program opens with a rare gem: Stravinsky’s little known the Concerto for Strings in D. Known as the Basle concerto, after the town in which it was written, this is one of Stravinsky’s brightest and most accessible masterpieces.

Berlin-based, Melbourne-born cello star Sharon Draper returns home exclusively for MCO to perform the dazzling solo in Haydn's vivacious Cello Concerto No. 1. Presumed lost until 1961, when a manuscript copy was found in the Prague National Museum, this thrilling work has quickly established itself as a cornerstone of the cello repertoire.

The most precocious of child-geniuses, Felix Mendelssohn composed his Octet for strings when he was just 16. Still regarded as one of the greatest of all Romantic works, the Octet will bring this program to a close, brimming with youthful spirit and unbridled joy."

    Is anyone interested in meeting up for lunch before the concert? We could eat at Southbank and then wander down to the Recital Hall.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
