Gippsland Symphony Orchestra – A Classical Triumvirate

13 Jul 2:00pm

Experience the grandeur of classical music with the GSO in its celebration of three titans of classical music as we present A Classical Triumvirate featuring masterpieces by Mozart, Haydn, and Beethoven.

Composed at the tender age of 15 Mozart’s Divertimento No 1 K113 in Eb Major (1771) is a composition of firsts, most notable is the first time he featured the Clarinet in his compositions. This work showcases the extraordinary youthful talent for melody, form and orchestration. Divertimento No 1 is a pointer to the genius of a composer who revolutionised the world of classical music.

Haydn Symphony No 101 in D Major “The Clock”  is one of the most celebrated works of the late classical period. Composed in 1793 during Haydn’s second trip to London the symphony explores, new for the time, approaches to rhythm, orchestration, and melodic ideas. This work along with Beethoven’s symphonic catalogue moved the composition ethos inextricably towards the Romanticism of the late C18 and C19.

Beethoven’s Symphony No 4 in Bb Major is an understated masterpiece of the classical era. Situated between the titanic 3rd and 5th symphonies the 4th offers a wealth of musical invention and depth. From the stirring opening to the thrilling finale this symphony showcases the brilliance of Beethoven and stands as a testament to his creativity and mastery of the symphonic form.
