Beethoven, Bruch and the Sydney Opera House – it's a combination that will re-energise the weariest soul.
This performance, conducted by Mark Wigglesworth, has two masterpieces to rediscover.
Bruch’s Violin Concerto No.1 is his most famous work, perfectly capturing the intensity of romance. Through all the emotions, there’s a wonderful sense of momentum urging us forward. You’ll be swept away by the shimmering technique of Australian rising star Emily Sun.
Beethoven’s Seventh is as monumental as it is familiar. One of the greatest symphonies ever written, full of power and longing, it dances with the joy and exhilaration of life.
Wagner’s Tannhäuser Overture leads our Great Classics program, and provides an opulent, cinematic introduction to an uplifting concert experience.*
