On Sunday 13th November 2016, the Melbourne Mandolin Orchestra (MMO) is proud to present 'New Harmony' with solo recorder player, William Hardy, performing the Concertino for Recorder and Mandolin Orchestra by Max Baumann, Opus 38, No.2.
William, a talented Year 10 student at McKinnon High School, not only won the Under 18 Years Old event but also the Open Event at the Don Cowell Memorial Trust Solo Recorder Competition in July.
He is a highly polished performer, a finalist in the Hepzhibah Menhuin Memorial Award in 2012, who delights his audiences with style and wit.
This special event will be held at St George's Centre from 2.30pm and feature the world premiere of 'Mettams Pool'. Poet Lorraine LePlastriere commissioned composer Robert Schulz to set her poem to music and the beautiful natural pool near Cottesloe Beach was its inspiration.
Chris Acquvella's 'Yutuma' is another Australian premiere. Chris is a classical mandolinist and educator from the USA, who lives in Mainz and studied in London with the late Alison Stephens.
The program also includes the charming 'Heavens on Earth' by American John Goodin and audience favourite ' Shakertown'!
Sydney composer and mandolin virtuoso Stephen Lalor is well known to audiences for his brilliant blend of western and eastern music. At this concert MMO will present his 'Australis Suite' and a delightful sonata by Valentin Roeser from the Eighteenth Century as the grand finale.
