Beethoven Symphony No.1

Joyful Beginnings

It’s time to rediscover the joy of Beethoven’s First Symphony and some of the early Classical masters.

Sydney Town Hall
**Booking fee of $8.95 may apply

Czech composer Jan Vaňhal was one of the great Viennese composers of his era and this symphony contains all the drama and spirit that made his style so popular.

His Czech compatriot Carl Stamitz was a contemporary, best known for his joyful Viola Concerto. With Principal Viola Tobias Breider as soloist, audiences will hear this remarkable work in all its radiance.

Full of irrepressible and exhilarating energy, Beethoven’s audacious First Symphony signalled to all Vienna the arrival of a powerful new genius at the dawn of a new century.
