Pull out the stops!
Dates Wed 5 Jun, Fri 7 Jun, Sat 8 Jun Venue Sydney Opera House
Duration 1 hour 45 mins (incl. 20-min interval)

Hear the Sydney Symphony shine under the baton of Charles Dutoit with two great symphonies.

In his Third Symphony, Saint-Saëns takes a single, impetuous musical idea and builds it into something powerful and richly coloured. For the final transformation, he pulls out the stops - literally - and the organ enters with the big tune (Babe!). This is your chance to hear the Grand Organ of the Sydney Opera House in action - as part of the fabric of the orchestra in this "symphony with organ".

This is also a chance to hear the virtuosity of the Sydney Symphony musicians. Our soloists are drawn from the ranks, highlighting the brilliance of our own players in a super-concerto by Swiss composer Frank Martin. Martin's virtuoso wit and sophisticated harmonies are introduced by one of Mozart's most buoyant symphonies - music that sings and dances and isn't afraid to show off!
