Beyond Baroque by Melbourne Chamber Orchestra

From an unrivalled musical pedigree and education, JS Bach’s sons blazed a revolutionary path.
With Telemann and others, they were the avant-garde forging a new style. Combining awe-inspiring
virtuosity, deep feeling, and brilliant colours, this is the music that inspired the Classical era. Rarely
heard today, these are some of the most exciting and inventive compositions for chamber
orchestra and we can’t wait to share them with you.


Christopher Moore is one of Australia’s most recognised chamber musicians, a viola superstar
whose verve and mastery of the instrument has seen him perform for audiences all over the world.
He performs the great Telemann viola concerto, often thought to be the first solo concerto for the
instrument, and a meticulous reconstruction of a lost viola concerto from JS Bach’s own
transcriptions.

CPE BACH Sinfonia in E minor Wq177 Fandango
TELEMANN Viola Concerto in G major TWV51:G9
Ouverture Les Nations TWV55:B5
WF BACH Symphony in F major F67
JS BACH Concerto for Viola in E flat major BWV1053R
(reconstructed by Wilfried Fischer)
