Mozart's Last Three Symphonies

Australian Chamber Orchestra

ACO and Tognetti on stage

Three symphonies, written in a matter of weeks by a genius at the top of his form – and three universes of emotion, beauty and uncompromising artistic truth.

Discover the radicalism of Mozart’s three last symphonies up close in a single sweep of creative energy from the Australian Chamber Orchestra, and their daredevil violinist and Artistic Director, Richard Tognetti.

There’s a good reason why The Guardian called Tognetti and his orchestra ‘one of the wonders of the musical world today’ – and why we’ve invited them to be International Associates at Milton Court. Music as great as Mozart’s deserves performers as virtuosic, innovative and uncompromising as Tognetti and the ACO: and in a confined space, their energy is even more irrepressible.

The performance is expected to finish around 9.30pm, including a 20 minute interval.
