Classical Music

Romance emerges in every tempo. Sometimes it is thrillingly insistent, as in the opening movement of Rachmaninov's Second Symphony.

Sweeping love stories

Sit with the music's quiet, delicious tension for a minute or two and be rewarded with a gorgeous section of cascading string melodies followed by a surge of invigorating music.

Dvořák's Violin Concerto is just as moving, the music ranging from jubilant to elegiac and back again. Stunning Canadian violinist Karen Gomyo, 'a first-rate artist of real musical command, vitality, brilliance and intensity' (The Chicago Tribune), will bring her remarkable artistry to the emotion, and draw out the down-to-earth folk melodies of Dvořák's native Bohemia.

Conducted by Australian Daniel Carter, who returns home after enchanting audiences across Europe, this will be an experience that goes straight to the heart.

Presented by Sydney Symphony Orchestra
