Celebrate Beethoven at the 3MBS Marathon
3MBS Fine Music Melbourne celebrates the 250th birthday of one of the world’s most recognised and influential composers, Ludwig van Beethoven by bringing some of Australia’s best fine music performers for an all-day event.
Artistic Director, Chris Howlett has curated six music concerts that will each begin with a reading from one of Beethoven’s private letters to reveal the joyful, tender and painful moments which inspired some of his best-loved works.
Expect to hear favourites like the Mass in C Major Op. 86, An die ferne Geliebte Op. 98, and Symphony No. 5 in C Minor, Op. 67, as well as some seldom-performed treasures.
Featured ensembles include Melbourne Chamber Orchestra, Flinders Quartet, the Goldner String Quartet, the Australian String Quartet, Trio Anima Mundi, Corpus Medicorum alongside soloists Elyane Laussade, Stefan Cassomenos and more.
