About Melbourne Recital Centre
Victoria’s newest music facility, the Melbourne Recital Centre has been designed as a pinnacle for musical appreciation and performance through its acoustic quality and amenity. The natural resonance of the hall immerses the listener in the sound of the performance. The performing conditions rivals the very best halls of the world. It is like the great halls of the old world: like Wigmore Hall and the Musikverein, but is a music space reborn, a contemporary place in the new world. It matches this excellence in the sophistication of its architectural imagery. Designed as a cultural hub and not just a hall, the MRC incorporates a 1000-seat auditorium, the Elisabeth Murdoch Hall, and the 130-seat Salon for intimate performances, pre-concert talks and recording. The design is fundamentally ordered around a procession from the street to foyer to the main spaces. This parti has its roots in the galleries of the great European performing halls, but its particular flow and mise-en-scene are of the 21st century. There is a range of significant spaces like the Salon, the patron lounges and VIP rooms, but the musical promenade culminates in the great space of the Hall. The MRC consolidates this city’s rich history for acoustic music performance, creating a beacon in the musical culture of Australia
