Beethoven & Brahms

Banquet of Sound

Beethoven's Triple Concerto is one of the few pieces for joint soloists still performed today. From a quiet opening emerges music that’s all about the interplay between soloists.

This is a wonderful opportunity to hear the skills of Concertmaster Andrew Haveron, cellist Umberto Clerici and Australian pianist Piers Lane.

Unfairly overlooked by history, Schreker was one of the most prominent Austrian composers of the early 20th century thanks to sweeping, richly coloured works such as this Intermezzo. Brahms' Symphony No.3 provides the perfect conclusion. From a dramatic and passionate opening unfolds music that’s classically romantic.

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.
