Sydney Symphony Orchestra Livestream: Elgar & Williams
September 18 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Watch the Sydney Symphony and conductor Vladimir Ashkenazy perform two Elgar masterpieces and Vaughan Williams’ magical Tallis Fantasia – streamed live from the Sydney Opera House.
Elgar’s powerful and poetic Cello Concerto was his favourite and most candid creation. The greatest cello concerto in the repertoire, it’s a tour de force for sensational young soloist Andreas Brantelid. The gorgeous Enigma Variations is a portrait of Elgar’s friends and includes one of the most beautiful moments of music ever written.
We look forward to having you with us! Light refreshments will be served from 6pm.
