ABOUT US 

 

The Australian Romantic & Classical Orchestra aims to inspire, educate and enlighten audiences. Through the combination of historical integrity and quality of musical performance, the Australian Romantic & Classical Orchestra leads a rediscovery of Classical and Romantic repertoire with the beauty and clarity unique to a full period instrument orchestra.

The Australian Romantic & Classical Orchestra presents repertoire spanning from the late Rococo to the Romantic era in the historically informed performance style. Our repertoire expands on the canon of works from this period and will include orchestral as well as large scale chamber and vocal music. This inspiring and highly influential period of composition, demonstrating the depth and passion of the time, will be placed in context and highlight significant yet under represented composers who, in their day, were admired, fashionable and popular.

The Australian Romantic & Classical Orchestra will invite the world’s foremost historically informed performance music directors and conductors as guests appropriate to each project. This specific artistic direction by the leading exponents of particular repertoires will inspire and create new vision for the Australian music landscape.
