Enjoy an intimate evening with opera star Emma Matthews and Mozart. Schubert’s orchestral music charms and delights.
Emma Matthews is one of Australia’s most beloved performers and one of opera’s brightest stars. Her versatility, charisma and exquisite coloratura soprano are the perfect fit for Mozart’s arias, those musical expressions of character par excellence.
Recognised as a Mozart interpreter, virtuosic and insightful, Emma Matthews has chosen hidden gems and well-known masterpieces that demonstrate Mozart’s dazzling ability to meld melody and voice.
Schubert’s gift for song shines in his lyrical Rosamunde music. The play it accompanied is deservedly forgotten but Schubert’s graceful, tuneful and at times profound accompaniment lives on. Schubert’s sparking Symphony No.3 looks back to his idols: Haydn, Beethoven and Mozart.
Join us for the pre-concert talk by David Garrett in the First Floor Reception Room, 45 minutes before the performance.
