Australian Romantic & Classical Orchestra’s Timeless & Thrilling Classical Melodies

Source: Sirmai Arts Marketing
Posted: 20 Apr 2018
The Australian Romantic & Classical Orchestra continues its 2018 season in May with classical melodies in Sydney, Melbourne, Blackheath & Batehaven.

“Thrilling, committed performances” - Limelight Magazine

The Classical Melodies tour invites listeners to discover the distinctive colours of 18th and 19th century instruments in a chamber music setting. The ARCO Chamber Soloists present two works for strings – Mozart’s Eine kleine Nachtmusik and Beethoven’s ‘Storm’ Quintet and introduce two lesser-known works from the same period – an octet for winds and strings by German opera composer Peter von Winter and a wind quartet by Italian Vincenzo Gambaro. This program is a wonderful opportunity to hear up-close how the delicate qualities of the earlier wind instruments – flute, clarinet, bassoon, horn – enhance the tonal breadth of the gut strings.

To bring this music to life with these instruments, the ARCO Chamber Soloists comprises specialist musicians from around the world. Australian Romantic & Classical Orchestra’s concertmaster Rachael Beesley is joined by principal violinist Jakob Lehmann from Berlin, and Paris-based Deirdre Dowling teams up with Simon Oswell on violas, along with cellist Natasha Kraemer and double-bassist Kirsty McCahon. Flautist Pablo Sosa del Rosario and bassoonist Takako Kunugi – both based in The Hague – join the orchestra’s principal clarinettist Nicole van Bruggen, augmented by natural horn specialists Anneke Scott from London and Graham Nichols.

Leading up to the Sydney performance, Australian Romantic & Classical Orchestra audiences will have the opportunity to enjoy an accompanying concert in the Richard Gill Presents A Voyage of Musical Discovery series. For this both entertaining and educational performance, the ARCO Chamber Soloists are joined by the contemporary musicians of Ensemble Offspring and Australian Romantic & Classical Orchestra Artistic Director Richard Gill AO, to explain and demonstrate the different ways that composers over the centuries build and develop musical textures and colours.

The Young Mannheim Symphonists education program (Sydney in July, Melbourne in January) further complements the Australian Romantic & Classical Orchestra’s concert season by inviting young musicians to play alongside professionals and be guided in the techniques of historically informed performance.
