Britain’s most revolutionary orchestra makes its first, widely anticipated full tour of Australia in 2017 with Musica Viva. This breaking ground Orchestra is a band of 20 expert musicians, playing on authentic instruments and led by the acclaimed violinist Rachel Podger.
The wonderful, forward-looking, revolutionary epoch which gives the Orchestra its name is brought to enchanting life through heavenly violin concertos by Mozart, and a sparkling sinfonia by his teacher Johann Christian Bach. Haydn’s Symphony no 36 sets the tone perfectly, as the epitome of grace – not least in a ravishing slow movement which is practically a tiny violin concerto in itself.
Lovers of chamber music adore the OAE as a kind of supersized chamber ensemble. Each player brings a soloistic level of talent and engagement to a greater whole – and the effect is unforgettable!
