Australian Romantic & Classical Orchestra is
a force to be reckoned with.
Australian Romantic & Classical Orchestra’s finest chamber musicians bring you Sounds of Vienna, taking us to the centre of the cultural world at the dawn of the 19th century. One of the city’s stars was Joseph Leopold Eybler, a friend and distant cousin of Haydn’s. His String Quintet is a sparkling, delightful example of late Classical style, and deserves to be better known.
Schubert wrote his Octet in 1824 - his most ambitious chamber work, and arguably his finest, featuring those immediately Schubertian qualities of effortless, gorgeous melodies coupled with an almost desperate sense of heartache and longing.
