“Dancing on your own joy”
The enduring magic of Mozart
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart must be the most famous composer in music history.
And, as often performed and often praised as this Classical great's music is, whether we're performers or listeners, we don't tire of returning to it.
As the Australian Chamber Orchestra prepares to tour his Symphonies Nos. 31, 35 and 36 - the 'Paris', 'Haffner' and 'Linz' - our Musicians reflect on what is truly at the heart of the magic found in Mozart's music.
Mozart tours to Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, Sydney and Brisbane, 17-28 June.
