Mood: Mahler and Wagner - World Premiere by Iain Grandage

Presented by Australian Youth Orchestra

Mood: Mahler and Wagner - World Premiere by Iain Grandage

Mood: Mahler and Wagner. World Premiere by Iain Grandage

Music as stormy as the depths of winter, blazing with the energy of the Australian Youth Orchestra.

Under the baton of Melbourne-born Nicholas Carter, Iain Grandage’s Overt, composed for the Australian Youth Orchestra, will give each instrument a moment to shine.

Mahler and Wagner lived in an era when music was all about grand emotions, big sounds, and pushing boundaries. Witness Australia’s best young musicians on a rollercoaster of emotional intensity: from Wagner’s transcendent Prelude und Liebestod, to Mahler’s monumental Symphony No.5.

This is bold, romantic music. Don’t miss it. Tickets are on sale now!
