James Ehnes performs Beethoven
James Ehnes returns to Sydney to perform Beethoven’s monumental Violin Concerto.
The concert will conclude at approximately 10pm.
Join us for the pre-concert talk 45 minutes before the performances in the Northern Foyer, by Scott Kinmont.
Behind every great piece is a great story. Have a read through the program book to get all the details.
When James Ehnes last performed with the Sydney Symphony, he received rave reviews.
Now he returns to bring us Beethoven’s monumental Violin Concerto – one of the greatest of the violin repertoire, and entirely mesmerising here thanks to Ehnes’ masterly interpretation.
With Simone Young conducting, we move on to Brahms’ First Symphony, a work inspired by the inescapable Beethoven. Written at the height of his powers, this is the music that not only cemented Brahms’ reputation as a worthy successor to Beethoven, but also as one of the greatest Romantic composers of all time.
