On Thursday 21st March at 1pm , a recording of a concert featuring the music of Mendelssohn and Otto Nicolai can be heard on Fine Music102.5 FM. The concert took place last year in the Great Hall of Sydney University featuring the soloists; Elke Hook, Angela Lim, Keara Donohoe, Joshua Oxley, Tony Suryanthono, David Hidden with the Sydney University Graduate Choir and Orchestra conducted by Christopher Bowen. The Psalms 42 and 114 by Mendelssohn are heard rarely and deserve a place in the established repertoire. The Te Deum by Nicolai was in fact the first performance in Australia of this neglected work. This is another rare opportunity to hear this wonderful work.
In April there will be another broadcast of “An Australian War Requiem”. The exact date will be advised later this month.
