In 2008, a couple of months after Kevin Rudd said 'sorry' to the Stolen Generations, the Sydney Symphony premiered a groundbreaking collaboration between composers William Barton and Matthew Hindson, Kalkadungu. This vibrant meeting of Indigenous Australian and Western music won a standing ovation from young and old. Now we're excited to bring it back in a well-deserved reprise.
In this program, it's joined by even newer music: Stumble to Grace, a piano concerto composed especially for Orli Shaham and David Robertson by American Steven Mackey.
And framing the thrilling effects of solo virtuosity and haunting drama are two 'classical' symphonies: Mozart's ambitious Paris Symphony and Prokofiev's 20th-century take on Haydn.
Featured non-Australian music: Mozart, Steven Mackey, Prokofiev
