For the even younger Dmitri Shostakovich in 1926, it was his Petrograd Conservatory graduation effort, his First Symphony, which launched his career.
Like all of his music, it is a piece filled with wit, drama and tragedy. Fabian Russell conducts.

SAFETY IS OUR PRIORITY
The Sydney Symphony will continue to apply NSW Public Health Orders as they relate to ticketing and seating arrangements. As these Orders can change at very short notice, we will be allocating seats closer in time to concert dates than we have in previous seasons. This will allow us to maintain a COVID-19 safe environment.
