Stephen Hough performs Tchaikovsky

Flying Colours

Soaring melodies. Vibrantly rich colour. And a heart-pounding start. Tchaikovsky's First Piano Concerto remains a favourite for good reason. This season, one of the world's foremost pianists, Stephen Hough, brings his unique insight and phenomenal musicianship to the piece.

Next, it’s onto another favourite, Shostakovich’s Symphony No.5. Is it really an act of rebellion against Stalin’s rule?

While we may never know what Shostakovich had in mind with this symphony, that only makes us listen more closely for clues. A story of darkness and light. Despair and defiance. And the choices we make in swallowing our reality or questioning it.

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.
