Sydney Symphony Orchestra – Bold Intimacy

Fri 13 Aug

Britten & Shostakovich.

The Sydney Symphony Orchestra returns to Wollongong with music that speaks directly to our souls. It’s music from the heart, played with a bold conviction.

Britten created a dynamic between boldness and intimacy like few others. From his smaller ensembles to larger string arrangements, we can often hear this tension at play. It’s unmistakably Britten. Sydney Symphony concertmaster Andrew Haveron leads with Principal Horn Ben Jacks, and globally renowned tenor Andrew Goodwin who both feature in Britten’s Serenade.

Rudolf Barshai’s arrangement of Shostakovich’s Tenth String Quartet for string orchestra adds depth to its most intimate moments and power to its most brazen.
