Verdi Requiem

Melbourne Bach Choir and Zelman Memorial Symphony Orchestra are proud to bring you the Verdi Requiem with a cast of four superb Australian soloists under the baton of Rick Prakhoff.

Soprano Helena Dix recently made her New York Metropolitan Opera debut. Last November, she sang the Verdi Requiem with London’s Royal Philharmonic Orchestra at the Royal Albert Hall. Jacqueline Dark is a multiple Helpmann and Green Room Award-winning mezzo-soprano. Paul O'Neill has sung leading tenor roles throughout Australasia and Europe. In addition to his international and OA reputation, bass baritone, Adrian Tamburini is well-known to Zelman Symphony audiences, having sung in Mahler’s Symphony No. 8 and Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 13, Babi Yar.

Often described as "Verdi’s greatest opera", his Requiem is an expansive yet tightly knit masterpiece of monumental drama and intense emotion.

Stradivarius Magic

We are honoured to be able to present one of the world’s leading violinists, the exciting Canadian superstar, Alexandre Da Costa to play the Beethoven Violin Concerto. Alexandre plays the 1701 Stradivarius "Deveault" the way a Strad should be played. He has given over two thousand concerts and recitals throughout North America, Europe, Australia and Asia.

After the Beethoven we will present Sibelius Symphony No.1, the work that thrust Sibelius into international recognition.
