Simone Young conducts Tchaikovsky – Symphony Series 4
Next Occurrence : 12 Aug 2021
It's a joy to welcome Simone Young back to Adelaide in a program which blends the much-loved with the brand new.
Tchaikovsky bared his soul in his final symphony, which also became his farewell to the world. Written only a few months before his death, his Pathétique symphony is a vivid and poignant musical valedictory. Few composers have confronted their demons in music of such ravishing beauty.
Tchaikovsky admired Mozart above all other composers, and once wrote:
‘It is thanks to Mozart that I have dedicated my life to music. He...made me love music more than anything else in the world.’ In his Haffner symphony, Mozart holds richness, poise and melodic beauty in masterful balance.
One of Australia’s most exciting composers, Mary Finsterer’s new work makes a fine addition to the growing body of work by women composers being presented by the ASO.
Join us one hour prior to the concert for a Classical Conversation between Simone Young and ASO Managing Director, Vincent Ciccarello.
