DETAILS

Following the immensely popular Beethoven Marathon in 2013 and Schubert Marathon in 2014, 3MBS Fine Music Melbourne is proud to present a 14-hour Brahms Marathon. Taking place on Sunday 22 February between 9am and 11pm, this event promises to be a highlight on the Melbourne music calendar for 2015.

Across seven 2-hour sessions, you’ll hear 50 of Australia’s finest chamber and vocal musicians performing 45 of Johannes Brahms’s greatest masterpieces, including the gorgeous clarinet quintet, the serene piano Intermezzi, the vivacious piano quintet, the mammoth Handel Variations and Fugue, the Four Serious Songs, and much, much more.

ALL DAY PASS

An All-Day Pass allows access to all seven concerts across the day and represents extraordinary value. During the half-hour breaks between performances, you have the flexibility to purchase food and beverages at the onsite café and bar or pre order a meal pack.

PREMIUM ALL DAY PASS

For the ultimate VIP package, consider a Premium All-day Pass. Experience the performance from the dress circle, and join the artists after each performance in the adjacent Brahms Lounge overlooking the magnificently restored Main Hall. Delectable food, and wine and sparkling from Bittern Estate and Di Giorgio Family Wines will get you in the mood for the next performance. And don’t forget to pick up your included program.
