Music manuscript orchestra, very cute!

 Last Sunday the 11th of October music’s velvety chocolate mud cake, graced the stage of Hamer Hall. The London Philharmonic Orchestra were one of the main international attractions of this years Melbourne International Arts Festival. The Sunday concert was musical cream, the afternoon’s repertoir was Richard Wagner’s (1813 – 1883) Prelude to Act 1 of Die Meistersinger von Nurnberg, Tchaikovsky’s (1840 – 1893) Violin Concerto in D, Op.35 with violin soloist Vadim Repin, and the show stopper Beethoven’s (1770 – 1827) Symphony No.3 in E flat, Op.55, Eroica.

The orchestra was conducted by a very entertaining Vladimir Jurowski, who has been conducting the orchestra since 2007, he had the audience in the palm of his hand even before he walked on stage, as he made the audience wait in anticipation for 10 minutes after the orchestra had entered the stage and tuned their instruments, but it was deffanatly worth the wait.

The repertoire was performed flawlessly and beautifully, but my favourite moment was when they performed the Australian National Anthem, I have never been more proud and moved to hear it played so well, it really is a lovely piece of music that we should be proud of.

I would like to thank the Melbourne International Arts Festival for organising such a wonderful concert and talent, it was a privilege to be able to experience one of the worlds best orchestras in Melbourne, and its wonderful the discounts for student tickets. I can not wait to see what they have lined up for next year!
