Beethoven & Mozart

21 – 22 July 2023

In the Utzon Room

Sydney Symphony Orchestra

Classical Music

The Sydney Symphony’s superb wind section comes to the fore in gorgeous, intimate chamber works by Mozart and Beethoven.

Heartwarming Classics

Enjoy the unmistakable glow of the Sydney Symphony woodwind section in an engaging program featuring works by Beethoven and Mozart. Performing in the cosy surrounds of the Utzon Room, it’s an opportunity to be close to our talented musicians.

The combination of two clarinets, two bassoons and two horns is an instrumentation that delivers a rich, mellow warmth that has attracted many composers to write for this combination. Beethoven and Mozart were both experts at writing for these instruments, and these works beautifully accentuate the unique blend of tones.

Mozart wrote concertos for all three instruments, so he knew exactly how to show off their potential. His Serenade is pure entertainment, and with this skilled ensemble it will be a perfect pick-me-up for a midwinter’s day.
