Event Details

The ASO joins forces with Adelaide’s other leading musical treasure, the ASQ, for a brilliant concert combining the contemporary and the traditional. Arvo Volmer has championed Carl Vine’s new symphony, a work of this great Australian composer’s creative maturity. Matthew Hindson’s The Rave and the Nightingale is a twenty-first century take on Schubert, while Elgar’s impassioned Introduction and Allegro was inspired by the breathtaking scenery of his native Worcestershire. The musical portraits of Elgar’s friends in his Enigma Variations balance lust and affection, but the noble strains of the Nimrod variation have made it one of the most beloved tunes in all music.
