The Sydney Symphony Orchestra’s curtain raiser for 2021? Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto. One of the most (if not the most) popular Romantic violin concertos, it’s a beautifully lush piece – and almost impossible not to fall in love with. It’s only fitting that it is performed by Australian violinist Ray Chen who rose to international fame performing this piece in the Queen Elisabeth Competition just over 10 years ago.
Inspiring just as much passion is Dvořák’s New World Symphony. A striking blend of his typical Bohemian style and African American influences, Dvořák’s symphony remains a universal favourite – even taken along with Neil Armstrong on his journey to the moon.
