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.
