The widely acclaimed Mahler Chamber Orchestra are visiting Australia for the first time this June and will present two very special concerts at one of the world's most famous venues, the iconic Sydney Opera House.
Described by the French newspaper Le Monde as "the best orchestra in the world", the ensemble was formed by luminary conductor Claudio Abbado in 1997 and now consists of 45 professional musicians. In addition to sell-out concerts in Europe and Asia, the ensemble has also recorded several prize winning CDs and gained popularity with a wide audience, as their repertoire ranges from baroque to contemporary and opera to symphonies.
At the Sydney Opera House Concert Hall, the Mahler Chamber Orchestra will showcase 'Beethoven's Violin Concerto', accompanied by celebrated German violinist, Christian Tetzlaff, on June 10th and the selected works of 'Shostakovich and Dvořák', accompanied by renown American cellist, Alisa Weilerstein, on June 11th. Both of these anticipated concert events will be conducted by Daniel Harding.
