ACO: Mozart & Britten

16 May @ 19:30 - 21:30

One event on 21 May 2022 at 19:30

$49 – $152

Benjamin Britten and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart reach out to one another across the centuries in profound and deeply moving communion.

Mozart’s wondrous Sinfonia Concertante intertwines violin and viola soloists in a partnership of equals. They speak to one another of beauty, loss, consolation and, finally, exaltation.

Britten, like Mozart, was gifted beyond his years and had an instinct for timeless musical expression. This extraordinary elixir of youth and wisdom can be heard in his Elegy, written by the composer when he was just 16 (coincidentally the same age at which Mozart wrote his Divertimento in D major). The ACO gives Britten’s work its long-awaited Australian premiere.
