TSO Screenings

Next date: Monday, 05 December 2022 | 12:00 PM to 01:00 PM


Burnie Arts are pleased to present the following free TSO screenings to co-inside with all Cruise Ship visits.

These screenings will run from 12noon for approximately 2 hours


5 December - Dvorak's New World


Dvořák’s ‘From the New World’ was voted the nation’s favourite symphony in the ABC Classic 100 Symphony Countdown. This richly emotive work recalls Bohemian folk music, African American spirituals, Native American poetry and German symphonic structure. It’s a concoction of old and new; nostalgia for one’s homeland together with inspiration from a new world.

Fast-forward to our own times and you’ll hear music from Missy Mazzoli – an American composer who looks further afield than Dvořák could have imagined: she composes the loops of a solar system in Sinfonia (for Orbiting Spheres).

Our program also features soloist Daniel Müller-Schott in Schumann’s only cello concerto. This expressive work is known to prioritise sensitivity above technical prowess – but if you listen closely, you’ll hear an abundance of both.

13 December - Mozart's Requiem


Two great mysteries have surrounded Mozart’s Requiem: who commissioned it and who completed it? Luckily, with modern-day sleuthing skills, we have convincing answers to both. The anonymous commissioner was Franz von Walsegg, a nobleman who insisted on secrecy so he might claim the music as his own. But Mozart died while composing it, leaving three final movements unwritten.

If you’ve seen the Oscar-winning film Amadeusyou may believe Antonio Salieri played a suspicious role in its completion. In fact, it was Mozart’s student Franz Xaver Süssmayr who brought this monumental work to a close.

Regardless of who finished the job, Mozart’s Requiem continues to hold audiences spellbound with its beauty and power. It stands alone on our concert program – a rare treat for any audience.


21 December - Beethoven Emperor


Finnish pianist Paavali Jumppanen has performed all of Beethoven’s sonatas and concertos, and now brings everybody’s favourite concerto, Beethoven’s ‘Emperor’, to Tasmania. Also on the program is Elgar’s stirring and heartfelt tribute to friends and associates, the Enigma Variations, one of the best-loved works by a composer with a gift for melody and orchestration.

Between the Beethoven and Elgar let your imagination drift in Paul Stanhope’s impressionistic CloudformsThis gently ethereal work was commissioned for the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra in 2007 and continues to offer a moment of serenity.
