ABOUT THIS EVENT

Geoffrey Lancaster doesn't just perform 18th-centure music on period instruments, he gets inside the heads of Mozart and Haydn, bringing their world to life in the 21st-century with a 'blend of scholarly wisdom and impeccable musicianship'(Sydney Morning Herald).

Classical composers were playful and dramatic, lyrical and bold - just listen to the storm-tossed opening of Mozart's C minor Sonata, a portrait in extreme mood swings. Hear these mavericks anew as Geoffrey performs on Melbourne Recital Centre's beautiful McNulty fortepiano (a forerunner of hte modern pianoforte) in the intimate Salon, just as original audiences would have enjoyed them.
