Orchestra Nova are proud to present what may be the first Australian public performance of a rare 19th Century symphony.
Antonin Dvorak’s Symphony No. 1 in C Minor (subtitled “The Bells of Zlonice”), thought by the Czech composer to have been lost or destroyed, was uncovered nearly sixty years after its composition and has only been available in its published form since 1961.
The piece will be performed by Orchestra Nova at its first concert for the year, titled “Rare and Beautiful”. The concert will be held on Sunday 4 May at Lake Macquarie Performing Arts Centre, starting at 2pm.
To complete the May concert programme, the orchestra will also be performing individual works for strings, winds and brass as well as an excerpt from the opera-ballet Mlada by Nicolai Rimsky-Korsakov.
The event will also include a raffle and light refreshments can be purchased.
Tickets: $15 general admission, $10 student/pensioner concession. Discounts are available for group bookings. All ages are welcome.
Tickets available at the door (if not sold prior) or online at http://www.stickytickets.com.au/16072
