MCO Salon Session 1: Brio & Passion

  • Primrose Potter Salon, Melbourne Recital Centre (map)

Wherein lies the genius of Mozart? In his fifth quintet, it’s the harmony of oppositions: charm meets brio, the profound rubs shoulders the light-hearted. With boundless invention, Mozart finds perfect balance and makes perfection seem utterly effortless.

From its triumphant opening cello solo to its glistening finale, Brahms’ second string quintet is a opulent dose of lustrous, unabashed Romanticism. Surging forth with an ardour and warmth of humanity without equal, don’t miss this opportunity to catch the energy of this glorious masterpiece live.
