The Melbourne Musicians directed by Frank U. Pam present a program of melodious works by two of the greatest opera composers, with two outstanding soloists: multi-prizewinning soprano Elena Xanthoudakis and acclaimed oboist Anne Gilby.
Three of Mozart's most loved arias:
"Misera, dove son" K.369
"Deh vieni" from Marriage of Figaro
"Ach, ich fühl's from The Magic Flute.
Schubert "Ave Maria" and Adina's aria from Donizetti's "L'Elisir d'amore" (Elixir of Love).
Donizetti's rarely heard Concertino for English Horn and Orchestra and Colin Brumby's serenely beautiful Scena for Cor Anglais and Strings.
The performance is in St Johns Southgate, one of Melbourne's finest concert venues, with its intimacy and excellent acoustics.
