From its dramatic opening to its lyrical slow movement and spectacular ending, it captures the essence of Grieg's Norwegian heritage – particularly in its folkdance finale.
Switching from serious to playful, innovating by twists and turns, the remarkable 104th was Haydn’s last symphony – and remains one of his most popular.

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.
