Across six sessions, you’ll hear 85 of Australia’s finest chamber and vocal musicians perform 22 of Mozart’s greatest masterpieces including: Piano Concerto No. 12 in A major, K. 414, Serenade No. 10 in B-flat major, K. 361 ‘Gran Partita’, Clarinet Concerto, Mozart Piano Sonata No. 11 A major K. 331, Piano Trio No. 5 in C major K.548, Serenade No. 13 in G major, K. 525, ‘Eine kleine Nachtmusik’ and much, much more.
In a new addition to the Marathon program, young music lovers can explore the life of Mozart through his music – beginning with the child prodigy’s very first composition at only five years of age! The Mozart Minors program for children 4-12 years is a magical and informative musical journey through the music of Mozart’s childhood, with performances for piano, string quartet, and clarinet quintet. Suitable for children aged 4-12 years, Mozart Minors features performances by some of Melbourne's leading musicians from Melbourne Symphony, Australian String Quartet and Australian National Academy of Music.
