In the Concert Hall

Classical Music

Grammy-nominated pianist Joyce Yang brings her 'vivid and beautiful playing' (New York Times) to a program that excites on every level.

Expansive landscapes

Prepare for moments of drama, as in the iconic opening of Grieg's Piano Concerto. This is a work that is colourful and intensely lyrical, with a beautiful Adagio and a folk music-inflected final movement. And don't miss Yang letting loose in the wildly entertaining cadenza.

Dvořák was inspired to write his New World Symphony after moving to America and experiencing its open spaces and sense of freedom. The work is packed with memorable melodies and delightful tension.

This is also a rare opportunity to hear work by Missy Mazzoli, a 'symphonic composer with a photographer's eye' (NPR). These Worlds in Us is wonderfully cinematic, with a real sense of yearning and all her hallmark inventiveness.

Presented by Sydney Symphony Orchestra
