The blazing energy of Mahler’s Fifth Symphony is truly breathtaking live.
Mahler’s Fifth Symphony is an extraordinary creation in both sound and scale. This vast musical journey builds from a luminous fanfare from a single trumpet to moments of great explosive power and a poignant contemplation of love in the Adagietto – one of the best-loved movements in all of music. Under the dynamic direction of Simone Young, Mahler’s vast architecture is revealed, and his stunning colours burn bright.
A rising star, French composer Camille Pépin has created an enchanting expression of life’s technicolour with her Violin Concerto. A work of long, shimmering chords, suspended and weightless, has a peerless interpreter in Renaud Capuçon, who, together with Simone Young, gave the world premiere of the work with the Orchestre National de France in April 2022. Co-commissioned by the Sydney Symphony, it’s our turn to hear this duo deliver Pépin’s compelling new work.
