Evening with Melbourne Symphony Orchestra

Indulge in a spectrum of orchestral delight with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, when they hit the stage at the Albury Entertainment Centre on Thursday 20 October 2022.

The orchestra will premiere new work from renowned local composer Paul Stanhope, and music's most famous four notes - the opening to Beethoven's iconic fifth symphony.

The grandeur of Ludwig van Beethoven at the height of his powers is showcased in this most impactful of beginnings. Beloved by performers and audiences alike, the fifth symphony is a musical adventure. Beethoven takes simple themes (including this famous rhythm) and expertly weaves them int a layered musical texture while building a sense of dramatic urgency building to a powerful and fulfilling finale.

Acclaimed Australian composer Paul Stanhope brings a contemporary and delicate touch to his boisterous use of the same orchestral forces. Across the short, characterful movements of Spin Dances, fate is less 'knocking at the door' than flinging it open and whirling through the landscape in a flurry of spirited rhythm and dynamic harmonies.

The show is part of the the Albury Entertainment Centre's Theatre Season, featuring seven stage productions over the year sourced especially for the Albury Wodonga community.

Entertainment Centre Venue Manager, Brendan Maher, said the performance will be one to remember.

"We are delighted to bring this powerful production to Albury, giving our community the opportunity to hear Beethoven's famous work performed by some of the most talented musicians in Australia," Mr Maher said.
