Tasmania Symphony Orchestra - Sibelius’ Violin Concerto
‘Soulful’ is probably the word that best sums up the Violin Concerto by Jean Sibelius. A deeply emotional work, it touches the listener in profound and poignant ways. It is without question one of classical music’s great experiences. Mozart’s Haffner Symphony offers an altogether different experience. One of the composer’s sunniest works, it is irresistibly good-natured. The percussion section comes to the fore in Bartók’s Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta; a 20th-century classic that is unsettling, powerful and wonderful. Not to be missed!
