Melbourne Chamber Orchestra

27 Jul at 2.00pm - Theatre Season 2019

Join Melbourne Chamber Orchestra for a new chapter in its musical journey—the orchestra's first performance of music for chamber orchestra and choir. Polyphonic Voices, directed by Michael Fulcher, has gained a reputation for its extraordinary choral singing and collaborations with diverse ensembles including MSO and Plexus. They join us for Schubert’s second Mass, a work inspired by the composer’s divine gift for melody. Utterly gorgeous and infused with a gentle mystery, the Mass in G is a pure ray of heaven on Earth.

Composed just a few months after the Mass, Schubert’s third symphony reveals an impossibly accomplished and confident eighteen-year-old symphonist. Written with sparkling classic lightness, a treasury of tunes and unalloyed joy, this rarely-performed work of genius is among the most uplifting of all symphonies.

“Excellent music-making you wished could have lasted longer.”
—The Age
