Love conquers all in these romantic favourites.

Tchaikovsky’s Fantasy Overture portrays the intense passion, heartbreak, and transcendent love of Shakespeare’s star-crossed lovers in vivid detail. The soaring love theme is one of the most rapturous melodies he ever composed. Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto is lyrical, virtuosic and packed with sumptuous orchestral accompaniment. Two of Australia’s most exciting young musicians make their Classics debut in this richly romantic concert.


Felix MENDELSSOHN Violin Concerto in E minor
Georges BIZET Carmen: Suite No.1
Pyotr Ilyich TCHAIKOVSKY Romeo and Juliet – Fantasy Overture
