Brandenberg Orchestra

In 2023, the famed Australian Brandenburg Orchestra, a baroque orchestra that tours Australia, will put on six live concert series performed at Sydney’s City Recital Hall and Melbourne Recital Centre.

The ambitious season reimagines diverse musical and cultural traditions and will see the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra and Brandenburg Choir perform alongside celebrated Australian and international guest artists including Canadian-American cellist Elinor Frey, French Baroque violinist Théotime Langlois de Swarte and Swiss-Iranian Baroque violinist Leila Schayegh who will all make their Australian debut. 

Expect a truly global repertoire that will transport and transfix you.

The production will open with Spanish Steps featuring leading Canadian-American cellist Elinor Freyin her Australian debut. Transporting audiences to the Spanish Steps in Rome, the concert’s rich program explores Italian composers and their affinity with Spain in an era of cultural enlightenment. Alongside the full orchestra led by Paul Dyer on the harpsichord, guest performer Frey will reveal her astounding artistry in seldom performed works by Boccherini and Sammartini. 

Following that, Vivaldi will be given new life in Vivaldi Unplugged, promising to be one of next year’s most evocative experiences, the concert series will highlight Brandenburg’s celebrated concertmaster Shaun Lee-Chen’s consummate command of the violin and feature stage direction by Yaron Lifschitz, the Artistic Director of leading Australian performance company Circa.
