Benjamin Northey conducts Kaleidoscopic Splendour
Melbourne Symphony Orchestra conducted by Benjamin Northey - Costa Hall
Program Info: Miriam Hyde Village Fair Korngold - Violin Concerto D-Major, op.35, the concerto has themes from the scores for the movies ANOTHER DAWN (1937), ANTHONY ADVERSE (1936) & THE PRINCE AND THE PAUPER (1937) Antonín Dvořák - Symphony No.8
The MSO brings a program of vivid melodies and kaleidoscopic colour to Geelong's Costa Hall, joined by a rising star soloist Emily Sun.
With works spanning the 20th century, Miriam Hyde remains one of Australia’s most respected composers. At 21, she even debuted her own Piano Concerto with the London Philharmonic Orchestra! Within a compact running time, Village Fair – subtitled ‘a ballet for orchestra’ – alternates buoyant and sprightly melodies with introspective and lyrical passages.
Currently based in London and teaching violin at the Royal College of Music, Emily Sun possesses an expansive resume with accolades such as the 2018 ABC Young Performer of the Year. Emily tackles Erich Wolfgang Korngold’s elegant and yearning Violin Concerto, expanded from thematic material he originally composed for film scores during the 1930s.
Antonín Dvořák’s cheerful Eighth Symphony emerged out of the composer’s desire to refresh his approach to the form. Composed over a whirlwind few weeks in his holiday home in the Czech countryside, the symphony seamlessly moves through passages of melancholy and vigorous joy.
