About the performance

Debussy’s picturesque Nocturnes conjure visions of clouds, festival celebrations and dangerously alluring sirens!

This rare performance of the complete set of three movements inspired by paintings by James MacNeill Whistler: Nuages (Clouds), Fètes (Festivals) and Sirenes (Siren), which will stir emotions and imaginations as the voices of the Ladies of the MSO Chorus are integrated into the orchestra.

MSO musicians, Christopher Moore (viola) and Timo-Veikko Valve (cello, ACO) perform in the thrilling world premiere of celebrated Australian composer Mary Finsterer’s Double Concerto, Missed Tales III – The Lost.

Brahms’ grand and sweeping Fourth Symphony, a favourite among many a conductor and musician, completes the evening.

Why it’s a must see

“If you ask me which Brahms’ symphony is my favourite, the answer would be the one I’m conducting right now. But I do believe that the fourth is truly my favourite!”
Sir Andrew Davis, Chief Conductor

Pre-concert talk

Composer, Mary Finsterer, will join host Andrew Aronowicz in conversation before the concert to discuss her work and how MSO musicians will bring it to life.
