“I have to confess something right here, at the very beginning…I am, quite simply, in love with the Australian Romantic & Classical Orchestra.” CLASSIKON


Under the Artistic Direction of Richard Gill AO, Australian Romantic & Classical Orchestra brings to life the colours and contrasts of Classical music together with the expression and emotion of Romantic music in a fabulous concert season in 2018. Together with Polyphonic Voices in Melbourne and Sydney Chamber Choir in Sydney, and the exquisite and dynamic period instruments of Australia’s world-class Romantic and Classical orchestra, rediscover the Pastoral Melodies of Mozart, Mendelssohn, Brahms and Beethoven.
