Prepare to be transported back in time to the 18th century as Stefan Cassomenos brings Mozart’s Piano Concerto No.23 to life. This masterpiece was written just two months before the premiere of The Marriage of Figaro and showcases a palpable operatic influence that creates a truly dramatic and characterful experience. Melbourne’s beloved pianist, Stefan Cassomenos, will be at the helm of this performance, showcasing his virtuosic skills and breathing new life into Mozart’s timeless concerto.

Explore the complex inner workings of one of Shakespeare’s most tragic figures through Beethoven’s Coriolan Overture. Originally written as incidental music for a play by Heinrich von Collins – based on Shakespeare’s Coriolanus – this overture remains the most notable aspect of von Collins’ work. The Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, led by Cybec Assistant Conductor Carlo Antonioli, will expertly transport audiences back to the time of its creation, immersing them in the emotional and psychological landscape of Coriolanus.

The concert will conclude with Beethoven’s Eighth Symphony, composed in 1812 when the composer was almost completely deaf. The Eighth Symphony challenges the traditional idea of the symphony as a genre – what appears to be light-hearted playfulness on the surface is actually a highly experimental and radical work that has stood the test of time.

Don’t miss out on a fantastic evening at Melbourne Town Hall on March 23. Grab tickets by heading here.
