  • Shchedrin Frescoes of Dionysius
  • Mustonen Sonata for Violin and Orchestra World Premiere

White Hat suggests that this concert is quite special since a world premiere conducted by the internationally respected composer himself doesn't come along all that often in Melbourne. In addition there are two works by the Russian composer Rodion Shchedrin who many listeners will know from the percussion adaption he made of Carmen for his ballerina wife Maya Plisetskaya.
