Sydney Symphony: Edwards, Dvorak, Scriabin : Divine Dances

- Venue: Sydney Opera House, Concert Hall — Bennelong Point, Sydney, NSW
- Tickets: $78-$35 — Tickets can be purchased online
In Dvorák’s noisily exuberant Carnival Overture, night-time revellers vent their feelings in songs and dances. Ross Edwards’s dancing-chanting violin concerto veers between deep introspection and ecstatic rhythms, and it has an irrepressible impulse to dance that’s made it a winner with audiences all over the world.
But for philosophy, euphoria and a dizzying vision of music, no one can beat Scriabin, the Russian mystic. His Divine Poem is no mere symphony – it’s a revelation of the pleasures of the physical senses and the joys of 'untrammelled existence'.
