Our curtain raiser for 2021? Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto. One of the most (if not the most) popular Romantic violin concertos, it’s a beautifully lush piece – and almost impossible not to fall in love with.

Tchaikovsky’s romantic violin concerto is an opportunity to experience the Sydney Symphony debut of the dazzling virtuoso Daniel Röhn. Daniel has agreed to step in for Ray Chen who is unable to come to Australia at this time.

Inspiring just as much passion is Dvořák’s New World Symphony. A striking blend of his typical Bohemian style and African American influences, Dvořák’s symphony remains a universal favourite – even taken along with Neil Armstrong on his journey to the moon.

Concert Update: 28 January 2021

Ray Chen, who was set to perform for these concerts, is no longer able to come to Australia. Instead, we are excited to announce his replacement as German-born Australia-based violinist Daniel Röhn.


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.
