Mozart & Schumann

Musical Genius

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.

Laid back and lyrical, the Clarinet Concerto is one of Mozart's most beloved pieces – and expertly showcased by our own Principal Clarinet James Burke.

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.
