Beethoven's Fifth with its 'da da da dum' beginning is so famous, it's hard to imagine that in every concert someone might be hearing it live for the first time. Perhaps that will be you? Or maybe you know this symphony very well. Well enough to know that this is one musical journey that we can take again and again - it never gets old. That's the exhilarating genius of Beethoven.
The genius of Henryk Wieniawski was his brilliance as a violinist and it shows in his concertos. This is music in the Romantic style - sparkling, melodic, and full of virtuosity.
On Wednesday and Thursday, Carl Vine shows off the singing quality of the SSO strings in music that transforms the string orchestra into a single 'super instrument' - alchemy.
Featured non-Australian music: Wieniawski, Beethoven
