Romantic Serenades in Melbourne
Melbourne Recital Centre
31 Sturt St
Melbourne Chamber Orchestra brings to life the virtuosity of Romantic string writing with a trio of brilliant Czech composers and a mighty violin concerto. Dvoráks Serenade is a beloved showpiece, with the attention to detail of the composers renowned quartets and the drama of his symphonies. Compatriots Janácek and Suk complete the picture with evocative works full of lush harmonies and folk-inspired inflections. Glazunov was a Russian contemporary of Dvorák and his Violin Concerto is a staple of the virtuoso violinists repertoire. Ukrainian-Australian virtuoso Markiyan Melnychenko performs the show-stopping solo with MCO in a new arrangement for string orchestra.
