Stanley Dodds makes a welcome return to the CSO stage for this fascinating concert. The great masters are represented in 11.3 by some of their most popular symphonies: Schubert’s delightful “Little Symphony” is one of his most optimistic and perfect creations, and Beethoven’s majestic “Apotheosis of Dance” is stirring in its perfect architecture and soulful beauty. At this program’s centerpiece, the CSO is joined by one of Australia’s finest ensembles, the Goldner String Quartet, for a rare performance of Matthew Hindson’s Schubert-inspired The Rave and the Nightingale - a work of enormous energy and popular appeal. We are delighted to present the Canberra debut of such an impressive piece in this exceptional program.
Featured non-Australian music: Schubert; Beethoven
