Tchaikovsky & Grieg

Bold Pairings

Like the city that inspired the work, Tchaikovsky’s 'Souvenir de Florence' is both lush and grand – mingled with cobbled corners of romance and innocence. It’s an impressive feat for a piece written for only six instruments.

Grieg’s First String Quartet is similarly deceptive (in a good way) – bolder than its small ensemble suggests, and a perfect pairing for Tchaikovsky's sextet.

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.
