The Australian Youth Orchestra Mood: Mahler and Wagner Music by Wagner and Mahler

The Australian Youth Orchestra

The Australian Youth Orchestra (AYO), Australia's most prestigious youth ensemble, returns to Victoria for two powerful performances with Mood: Mahler and Wagner, on Saturday, 13 July at Costa Hall, Geelong/Djilang and Sunday, 14 July at Hamer Hall, Melbourne/Naarm.

Music as stormy as the depths of winter, blazing with the fiery energy of the Australian Youth Orchestra. Under the baton of Nicholas Carter, almost 100 of Australia’s best and brightest young musicians assemble for some of the most momentous works of the orchestral world.

The AYO said - ‘Mahler and Wagner were two formidable figures in an era when music was all about grand emotions, big sounds, and pushing boundaries. Wagner’s transcendent Prelude und Liebestod is a harrowing rumination on the perils of love and trembles with anticipation. Passion and heartache swell through the orchestra, stirring from the opening touch of the cello.’
Mahler’s Symphony No.5 is bold. Hold your breath as solo trumpet commands its opening
