THURS­DAY CHAM­BER MU­SIC

Beethoven & Mozart V, var­i­ous venues and times; May 5-21, adult from $54, conc from $46, aco.com.au Even in Beethoven’s time, peo­ple didn’t al­ways “get” new mu­sic. When crit­ics and au­di­ences dis­missed his Grosse Fugue in the early 1800s, he called them “cat­tle” and “asses”. But ap­pre­ci­a­tion for the work rose in the 20th cen­tury and es­teemed mu­sic critic Alex Ross, from The New Yorker, has called it “a mu­si­co­log­i­cal Holy Grail”. Au­di­ences can judge for them­selves as the Aus­tralian Cham­ber Or­ches­tra tours, play­ing Mozart and J.S. Bach, along with Lud­wig Van. The tour vis­its New­cas­tle City Hall (May 5), Can­berra’s Llewellyn Hall (May 7), City Recital in Syd­ney (May 14, 17, 18 and 20), Syd­ney Opera House (May 15) and Wol­lon­gong Town Hall (May 21).
