Illawarra and Southern Highlands Tour: Wollongong

The Sydney Symphony Orchestra comes to Wollongong with the most famous symphony ever written: Beethoven’s Fifth.

Beginning with the sound of Fate knocking at the door (da-da-da dum!), this symphony takes a dramatic journey to a brilliant and triumphant conclusion. Before the power of Beethoven you can hear Sea Pictures – music for voice and orchestra by the composer of ‘Land of Hope and Glory’ – with young Australian mezzo-soprano Shikara Ringdahl as soloist. Elgar’s five short songs are simple, direct and full of lyrical beauty as they evoke the ever-changing restlessness of the sea. Conductor Benjamin Northey has chosen the overture to the opera The Bartered Bride for a high-energy beginning to the concert.
