30 June – 1 July 2023

In the Concert Hall

Sydney Symphony Orchestra Classical Music

Experience the grand emotions of Schumann and Walton with the Sydney Symphony’s Chief Conductor Simone Young and award-winning cellist Steven Isserlis.

Powerful & Romantic

Hugely expressive and wearing grand emotions on its sleeve, Schumann’s Fourth Symphony has a passionate advocate in the Sydney Symphony’s Chief Conductor Simone Young, with her deep musical understanding of Schumann’s own Romantic vision.

Written over 100 years later, Walton’s Cello Concerto shares the same romantic essence. From a dreamy and tender opening, the music blossoms, alternating between fiery passion and deep introspection. Award-winning English cellist Steven Isserlis brings out all the nuances and delicate nature of the concerto, drawing you into this intimate work.
