Li-Wei Qin Performs Haydns Cello Concerto No 1

26 - 28 October 2023

In the Concert Hall

Sydney Symphony Orchestra

Classical Music

Be inspired by the dynamic talents of cellist Li-Wei Qin in a spirited program featuring Classical favourites of Mozart and Haydn.

Dazzling Classics

An inspiring and radiant favourite, Haydn’s First Cello Concerto is the perfect work to showcase the dynamic talents of Australian cellist Li-Wei Qin.

A lively and elaborate conversation between orchestra and soloist, the concerto’s opening movement is spirited and rapid, followed by moments of languid, divine beauty, leading to the final movement’s exuberance – all elevated by Li-Wei’s masterful dexterity.

Haydn’s Symphony No.88 is guaranteed to lift the spirits and Mozart’s brilliantly crafted Symphony No.39 is just as stirring. Dazzling with natural lyricism, jubilant melodies and dynamism, this is Mozart at the height of his powers.

Sydney Symphony’s Principal Guest Conductor Donald Runnicles brings his trademark dynamism to a program that will invigorate, uplift and delight.
