Australian Romantic & Classical Orchestra
The Voyage of Musical Discovery | Design & Innovation
The Voyage of Musical Discovery series was established and designed by the Australian Romantic & Classical Orchestra and its founding artistic director and world-renowned educator, the late Richard Gill.
The first Voyage of Musical Discovery of 2023 introduces, demonstrates and explains key concepts of design and innovation in music across the centuries. Witness core elements of composition, performance and musicology align in contemporary creative practice, in works presented by the Australian Romantic & Classical Orchestra, and composer/pianist Sally Whitwell and guests.
In the first half, musicians from the Australian Romantic & Classical Orchestra will perform and discuss elements of Design & Innovation in Mozart’s beloved Clarinet Quintet in A major, K.581, and in the second half, we will hear composer & pianist Sally Whitwell and soprano Anna Fraser. Their program includes a video installation by the fascinating Australian multidisciplinary artist Katy B Plummer.
