Beethoven’s powerful Egmont Overture is the perfectly emotive work to set the theme for this evening of impassioned music. Australian composer Mark John McEncroe’s symphonic poem titled “The Passing” will fill the air with beautiful and evocative melodies before we welcome leading Australian bassist, Kirsty McCahon (ex-principal, Australian Brandenburg Orchestra) to the stage where she will demonstrate the virtuosity of the double bass in Koussevitzky’s wonderful Double Bass Concerto. Brahms’ divine Second Symphony will shepherd the audience to this evening’s sublime pinnacle of passion which will leave musicians and audience members overflowing with joy and elation.
