Sibelius’ Fifth Symphony

Endless Beauty

Sibelius takes us on an ethereal waltz in "Valse triste" and to poetic heights in his glorious Fifth Symphony.

Venue
Sydney Town Hall
**Booking fee of $8.95 may apply

Partially inspired by sixteen swans taking flight, the Symphony swirls, spirals and soars before reaching something of a rock star finish.

To complete our Finnish theme, Concertmaster Andrew Haveron gives the Australian premiere performance of Jaakko Kuusisto’s dramatic Violin Concerto. Unmissable.

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.
