It's not every day you celebrate a 250th birthday. Be our guest in Beethoven's salon. We'll introduce you to some of Beethoven's friends and acquaintances via some rarely performed treasures, including a first Australian performance of his Elegy Op.118. We've invited a few composers we think Beethoven might enjoy meeting.
Join us at the party where dreams become reality.
'A seemingly effortless choral masterpiece ... an exercise in precision and perfection' - Weekend Notes
