Event Details

Remarkable to think this, his Sixth Symphony, was composed at the same time as his fire and brimstone Fifth Symphony, the work’s lush sense of nature invites you to enjoy the country after too long in the city.

When Danish composer Carl Nielsen heard the players of the Copenhagen Wind Quintet in performance he was so impressed he decided to write a concerto for each of them, starting with his Flute Concerto. Virtuosic and bold, yet tender and heartfelt, this music takes as many twists and turns as Beethoven’s Symphony on its way to a happy conclusion.

German conductor Johannes Fritzsch is no stranger to Beethoven and brings his superb interpretative skills to this performance with our Principal Flute, Joshua Batty as soloist.

Concert Update: 22 March 2021
Donald Runnicles, who was to conduct this concert, is no longer able to come to Australia. We are excited to announce his replacement as German-born Australia-based conductor Johannes Fritzsch.
