Following on from the success of our 2014 performance of Mahler’s Symphony No. 2 “The Resurrection”, the CSO is thrilled to collaborate once again with the Melbourne Youth Orchestra to present Mahler’s Symphony No. 1 “Titan”.
Depicting the romantic ideals of the spirit and heroism of mankind as he struggles but ultimately succeeds, Mahler’s Symphony No. 1 is a hymn to humanity and the world around us. Concluding with some of the most joyous orchestral writing in the repertoire, it promises to send your spirit soaring.
CSO Principal Clarinet Ellen Deverall will lead a trans-tasman trio of clarinets, including Andrew Uren (New Zealand) and Richard Haynes (Australia), to perform Eve de Castro Robinson’s Triple Clarinet Concerto. Creating a “super clarinet” between the three soloists, de Castro-Robinson’s concerto has been described as “over-flowing with colourful percussive strokes and tongue-in-cheek parody and a vibrant glitter of timbre”.
