KEZIA YAP New Work (world premiere)
MOZART Sinfonia Concertante for Violin & Viola
TCHAIKOVSKY Symphony No. 6 “Pathétique”
Inspired by the musical styles he encountered on his recent European tour, and impressed by the musicians of the Mannheim orchestra, Mozart completed the Sinfonia Concertante in 1779. Sisters Marina and Justine Marsden, both members of the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, join the PSO as soloists in this sublime work.
Continuing its tradition of championing the work of emerging composers, the orchestra will premiere an exciting new work by PSO Young Composer Award winner Kezia Yap.
Tchaikovsky’s dramatic and emotional sixth symphony was completed in August of 1893, and received its premiere only nine days before the composer’s untimely death. The work was well received immediately and rightly occupies a place in the repertoire as one of the great Romantic symphonies.
