Omega Ensemble performs Mozart’s ‘Gran Partita’ Serenade, considered to be his greatest work for winds.
Scored for 13 musicians, it is as captivating today as it was groundbreaking at its first performance. For this special presentation, Omega Ensemble has secured the A-team of Australian wind players, including principal musicians from the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra, Sydney Symphony Orchestra and Opera Ballet Orchestra, led by Omega Ensemble Artistic Director David Rowden.
