8 – 11 May 2024

In the Concert Hall

Sydney Symphony Orchestra

Classical Music

Indulge in the intoxicating richness of Tchaikovsky’s music with these performances of his Symphony No.5, with its passionate melodies and beautiful orchestration.

Intoxicating melodies

Conductor Han-Na Chang has a long and deep relationship with Tchaikovsky’s music, both as an acclaimed cellist and now as conductor. She brings her unforgettable interpretations to Tchaikovsky’s gloriously romantic music.   

Sydneysiders have always flocked to Uzbek pianist Behzod Abduraimov, and his virtuosity will be on full display in Prokofiev’s Second Piano Concerto – a work of bubbling, cascading vitality that’s one of the most fiendishly difficult piano concertos. Described by The Independent as ‘the most perfectly accomplished pianist of his generation’, here's an opportunity to witness his tremendous skill as he demonstrates his mastery of this incendiary work.

A show stopper.

Presented by Sydney Symphony Orchestra
