Edo de Waart returns to Sydney with Elgar's First Symphony and music by Mozart and Ross Edwards.
Ross Edwards believes that music has enormous therapeutic qualities: through music we find transformation and healing. And the enticing style of his White Ghost Dancing brings ritualistic rhythms and spiritual chanting to this final concert of the 2015 season
Mozart's Piano Concerto No.24 is full of passion and drama but it has something else: a sublime quality that takes it into another world of expression and feeling. Elgar continues the theme with a symphony that communicates the breadth of human experience and what he called 'a massive hope in the future'. You'll be moved by the First Symphony's nobility, its optimism and its gorgeous slow movement. A stirring and profound conclusion to the SSO's classical season.
Featured non-Australian music: Mozart, Elgar
