Bach and Telemann (Melbourne)
About Bach and Telemann (Melbourne)
Presented in its original one-to-a-part setting, experience the artistry of each performer as they put their heart into the master's music for an evening of ravishing music-making. Let the angelic beauty of soprano Alexandra Oomens' voice soar around you, and revel in the luminous mezzo-soprano tones of rising star Anna Dowsley as she makes her Pinchgut debut. Joining them in this stellar line-up are tenor Richard Butler, Pinchgut favourite David Greco (baritone) and Andrew O'Connor (bass).
Alongside Bach's jewel, Pinchgut Opera presents Telemann's Thunder Ode. Never before performed in Australia, this is one of Telemann's greatest masterpieces and a rousing work which calls forth the natural elements and celebrates the power of creation: a true showcase for the Orchestra of the Antipodes. An evening of sheer jubilation, uplifting elegance and grace.
