From its gripping opening to its gorgeously drawn melodies, Brahms’ Violin Concerto enthrals and moves with its colourful splendour.
An absolute tour de force for any violinist, this masterpiece provides a perfect introduction to the astonishing Augustin Hadelich. Sydney audiences can finally hear this Grammy Award-winning musician whose artistic power seems to move musical mountains “with tensile strength and sinew” (Gramophone).
Principal Guest Conductor Donald Runnicles is celebrated for his interpretation of Bruckner’s work. His Symphony No.3 (popularly known as his Wagner Symphony) is a wave of glorious sound and themes, with contrasts of intimacy and radiance which give way to a surging, triumphant finale.
