Classic Trumpet

Heroics from the orchestra in the Eroica and from trumpeter, Geoffrey Payne playing Haydn's trumpet concerto is our second program to feature brass this year – prepare to be blown away again! – twice! We are repeating this concert on the Sunday afternoon to give more people the opportunity of witnessing this fabulous program.

What can one say about the Mozart’s Wind Serenade K.375, except that it is truly a masterpiece. As is Beethoven's Eroica Symphony.

Haydn's trumpet concerto was a true first in its time. He wrote it for his trumpeter friend, Anton Weidinger, who had just invented the keyed trumpet so that he could play chromatically right across the entire range of the trumpet, which Haydn fully exploited in this ever-popular work.

The program will also feature the premiere of a new work composed for the orchestra by Harry Sdraulig, an MMus post-graduate student of the University of Melbourne and the 2015 Zelman Symphony / Melbourne University Emerging Composer.

Mark Shiell will present a pre-concert talk in the auditorium commencing 30 minutes prior to each performance.
