Sibelius Symphony No.2

A Window to the Soul

Simple but sublime, Max Richter’s minimalist style makes him one of the most popular composers alive today. On the 'Nature of Daylight' is a strikingly beautiful piece, cinematic enough to be used in films such as 'Shutter Island' and 'Arrival'.

Composed during a winter spent in Italy, Sibelius’ Second Symphony is another meditative work from the enigmatic Finnish composer.

Quiet and simple to begin with, it melts into some of his warmest music before rising to a glorious, expansive finale. Something Sibelius would later declare “a confession of the soul.”

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.
