David Robertson sees Schumann as absolutely pivotal in the journey of the Romantic symphony. And in Schumann's Fourth the symphony is transformed for a new age: unified in vision and full of Romantic fantasy. Schumann's Rhenish Symphony, inspired by the great unfinished cathedral of Cologne, brings the concert to a vibrant conclusion with spirited rhythms and sunny colours.
Celebrated Australian composer (and SSO violinist!) Georges Lentz also looks forward with expansive visions and fresh orchestral colours. His beautiful and intriguing compositions resonate in physical space - sometimes contemplative, sometimes ringing with the sound of galaxies. Each new premiere we get to play enriches our orchestral world. We can't wait to share this latest work with you.
