Mozart’s Serenades were written to be performed outdoors, and he drew attention to the unique textural and timbral qualities of the different instruments by dividing the players into two groups. The Australian Romantic & Classical Orchestra replicates and examines this remarkable sonic effect with gut strings and Classical timpani in this lively and humorous work from the 18th century.

Since the time of Mozart, composers have substantially increased the role and importance of percussion instruments. Taikoz – Australia’s award-winning taiko drum ensemble – showcases new Australian compositions that are entirely built around the dynamic range, explosive energy and huge expressive capabilities of percussion.
