Next Concert – Telemann in the Limelight

The final concert in our Melbourne Recital Centre series for 2014 is a rare opportunity to hear a programme devoted to the brilliant but sometimes overlooked composer Georg Telemann.  We welcome special guest artist Lucinda Moon (violin) for this programme.

Empire of the West

Next Concert: EXILE

Coming up on August 8, 7pm is the second of our Melbourne Recital Centre concerts for the year, and we are voyaging to mid-17th-century Europe, where the Barbarini family were bad, dangerous to know, and one of the most powerful families on the continent. From its ranks came patricians, a pope and a penchant for musical patronage that was on show both at home in Rome and in Parisian exile. Including works by Kapsberger, Galilei, Landi and Lambert, drawn from a world of luxury, excess and corruption, Exile is a seductive demonstration of the sort of music that can be bought when money is no object.
