The CSO is delighted to welcome soloist Phoebe Russell, recently returned to Australia after working in the Berlin Philharmonic, to play Jan Křtitel Vaňhal’s elegant and charming concerto, full of drama and excitement. Distinguished conductor Johannes Fritzsch leads the orchestra in Vaughan Williams’ Tallis Fantasia. This complex web of folksong, hymnal and mystic atmosphere creates a temporal bridge between the Tudors and modern England, translating the sounds of choral music into a string orchestra. Then we travel to the Northern Territory with Australian composer Paul Stanhope; Morning Star is a personal response to the rich tradition of Indigenous music making in central Arnhem Land. The program concludes with Beethoven’s Symphony No. 2, one of his most energetic, cheerful and outgoing works.
