The charismatic Simone Young returns to Sydney to conduct Bruckner's Fifth Symphony, joined by Imogen Cooper in Beethoven's Piano Concerto No.2.
It's always a pleasure to welcome Simone Young back to Sydney, bringing the music for which she has such a deep affinity: Romantic repertoire from the Austro-German tradition. In 2017 we hear Beethoven and Bruckner. For the Beethoven's Classically leaning Piano Concerto No.2 she's joined by esteemed English pianist Imogen Cooper. In Bruckner's towering Fifth Symphony we'll get to experience the heart of his grand, creative vision and become 'wanderers in the fields of eternal greatness'.
Get inspired to get out of your house and into ours this winter with music you’ll hear at our performances in 2017!
Join us for the pre-concert talk by SSO Assistant Conductor Toby Thatcher in the Northern Foyer, 45 minutes before each performance.Read Toby's bio
