Violin sensation Augustin Hadelich returns with Mendelssohn’s exquisite Violin Concerto, led by Chief Conductor Simone Young.

Conducted by Simone Young

'A violin masterclass... beg, borrow or steal a ticket' was how the Sydney Morning Herald described Augustin Hadelich's Sydney Symphony debut performances in 2022.

Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto is the ultimate star vehicle, equal parts richly expressive and dizzyingly virtuosic. In Hadelich's hands, and with his 1744 Guarneri 'del Gesù' violin, every ounce of Hadelich's huge artistry will shine through in this masterpiece.

Anton Bruckner's Eighth Symphony has been described as a cathedral of music. It must be heard live to fully experience its amazing colours.

2024 marks the 200th anniversary of Bruckner's birth, and as one of his great champions, Simone Young will be conducting his work around the world. This is Sydney's moment to experience Simone Young's celebrated interpretations, and an absorbing and rich invitation to the composer's astonishing sound world.

Don't miss one of the highlights of the 2024 Season.

Presented by Sydney Symphony Orchestra
