Katie Derham presents a concert from Melbourne Town Hall with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra - of which he has recently become Principal Conductor. The concert begins with an arrangement by Davis of Bach's Passacaglia and Fugue and ends with Brahms 2nd Symphony. Between the two, Cameron Carpenter is the soloist in Poulenc's Organ Concerto.
The programme ends with a nod towards tomorrow's Strauss 150 Opera Matinee - Feuersnot - Fire Famine. Strauss's one-act comedy upbraiding the residents of Munich for their indifference and hostility towards one of Strauss's heroes - Wagner.
