Taking cues from Philip Larkin’s poem, we begin with Radiohead’s guitarist Jonny Greenwood and his composition 'Water'.

Here instead of seeing refractions of light, we hear them – cascading, skipping, sliding and overlapping one another.

Refraction leads to reverberation with Saint-Saëns’ Third Symphony, the French composer’s most famous work. Performed on one of the largest organs of its kind in the world, it’s a resonant finish to a truly unique line-up. Dane Lam conducts.

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.
