Mozart & Shostakovich

Quartets from the Heart

From one master to another. Mozart’s String Quartet No.19 is a worthy tribute to his mentor Haydn – the ‘Father of the String Quartet’.

Pre-Concert

There will be no pre-concert talk prior to this performance commencing.

Program

Behind every great piece is a great story. Have a read through the program book to get all the details.

Like matters of the heart, the piece plays on our emotions and expectations, enticing us in with a lilting dissonance, before unfolding into a spirited (and very Mozartian) first movement.

Emotional from start to finish, Shostakovich’s quartet dives deep into the heart as he reflects on his relationship with third wife Irina Antonovna.

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.
