She celebrates the exuberance of the waltz kings, particularly the Johann Strausses – senior and junior. The Strausses were the stars of waltz-crazed Vienna, admired even by luminaries – including Brahms. Our Viennese Gala is a tribute to the iconic music and high society of Vienna and features the most famous expressions of its musical splendour: On the Beautiful Blue Danube and the Radetsky March. And Richard Strauss will outdo everyone with sparkling waltzes from his own immortal tribute to Vienna, Der Rosenkavalier.

Completely at home in these gilded environs, Simone Young is our foremost conductor of music from heights of the Romantic, drawing all the hypnotic movement and opulent colour from this timeless music.

Simone Young's performances are generously supported by the Robert Magid OAM and Ruth Magid Artistic Leadership Fund.

Presented by Sydney Symphony Orchestra
