“In this concert, I wanted to expand the concert experience with literature, theatre and drama, to make it a more immersive experience. Don Quixote is the novel that invented modernity. It teaches us that everything is subjective, that truth is relative, and each of us can have a dream, push for it and ultimately transform the world based on that dream. Don Quixote, in the end, is heroic for having pursued his own passion. Every musician is a Don Quixote. This program was a great chance to feature soloists from the Orchestra and my old friend, Piers Lane, who I have played chamber music with several times.” Umberto Clerici

Featuring a mix of theatrical and visual elements, with the glorious music of Richard Strauss, Umberto Clerici and our musicians will conjure up the famous story of Don Quixote, the nobleman who deludes himself into thinking he is a knight. This concert will also feature drama of a different kind when Queensland favourite Piers Lane performs Mozart’s 24th Piano Concerto – one of his most dramatic pieces for piano and orchestra.
