Discover the musical vistas of Bruckner in this illuminating concert

You don’t want to listen to Bruckner on your earbuds, you don’t want to listen to Bruckner in your car. To experience the extraordinary musical vistas and mind-bending moments of a Bruckner symphony, you’ll want to hear it in a magnificent concert hall, performed by a great orchestra with a conductor who holds the music dear to his heart. And this Sydney-exclusive concert with Sir Simon Rattle and the London Symphony Orchestra makes that possible.

Bruckner’s Seventh is the symphony that made his name – an instant success and his most popular symphony today. If you’re a Bruckner fan, you’ll want to hear this performance using the new edition by Ben Cohrs, full of energy and fresh details. If you’re new to Bruckner, there’s no better way to discover the sheer splendour and profound expression of his music.

The concert opens with two neglected miniatures – the overture to Schumann’s only opera and Stravinsky’s youthful Fireworks – and something new from London-born Daniel Kidane. Sun Poem draws on Kidane’s Eritrean and Russian heritage and takes inspiration from the joy, excitement and trepidation of fatherhood in music that’s “taut, terrific and excellently played” (The Times).
