The Musician Project Orchestra is back in June to present some of the most electrifying music for large orchestra. Returning to the podium to lead the ensemble for his second time is the masterly Fabian Russell, who directed the transcendent Musician Project performance of Mahler’s Ninth Symphony last year.
The orchestra are also excited to welcome home the young Australian cellist Jack Bailey, who returns from studies in the United Kingdom to feature in Sergei Prokofiev’s Sinfonia Concertante, one of the most impassioned and rarely-performed works in the cello repertoire.
The concert concludes with the most extravagant of Richard Strauss’ tone poems, Ein Heldenleben. An orchestral tour-de-force of heroism, love, conflict and triumph, ultimately fading into peaceful fulfilment.
