Mozart & Schumann
Happiness is listening to Mozart – especially 'The Abduction from the Seraglio'. While his opera is known for its high energy and light-hearted mood, his Clarinet Concerto reveals a gentler side.
This concert will conclude at approximately 10pm on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. And approximately 3.30pm on Thursday.
There will be no pre-concert talk prior to this performance commencing.
Behind every great piece is a great story. Have a read through the program book to get all the details.
Laid back and lyrical, the Clarinet Concerto is one of Mozart's most beloved pieces – and expertly showcased by our own Associate Principal Clarinet Francesco Celata.
For more music ahead of its time, it’s onto Schumann. Despite his generally fragile health, his Second Symphony remains defiantly optimistic – a triumph of spirit reflected in the finale itself.

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.
