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).

Vaughan Williams’ serene and peaceful Symphony No.5 is one of the English composer’s greatest achievements. Led by our Principal Guest Conductor Donald Runnicles it will be an unforgettable experience.
