Haydn, Mozart & Friends: Australian Brandenburg Orchestra

There will be music in the air this Spring when the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra arrives in Penrith.

Casting back to the days when good mates, orchestra conductor Haydn and freelance composer Mozart would get together for pop-up gigs with brilliant results - two admiring friends, performing impromptu concerts together. Fast forward 250-odd years to two relatively new friends - a Belgian period horn player, Bart Aerbeydt and Australia’s leading baroque cellist, Jamie Hey.

Witness the results when excellence from the two eras comes together. A chance to let brilliance shine. The Australian Brandenburg Orchestra musicians join Bart and Jamie and put their signature style on some glorious classics as they bring to life the original colours of Baroque and Classical masterpieces from centuries ago, with the beautiful sound of instruments of the period.

The Brandenburg invites you to discover the exquisite music of the sixteenth, seventeenth and eighteenth centuries in a whole new way. The orchestra, with the help of charismatic Artistic Director Paul Dyer, will take you back to a historical era full of passion, electrifying vitality and artistic excellence.

…what stands out at concert after concert is the impression that this bunch of musicians is having a really good time. They look at each other and smile, they laugh…there’s a warmth and sense of fun not often associated with classical performance. Sydney Morning Herald.

Enjoy the elegance of The Joan’s Borland Lounge before the show, as it shines in salon style. You might even like to take the experience a step further and dress in your finest formal evening attire for a truly memorable night in the Concert Hall.

It is new, it is old, and it is fabulous. Sydney Morning Herald
