Tchaikovsky’s 4th Symphony has an intriguing relevance to our times. It begins with a strident fanfare played by the horns that the composer indicated was meant to be the sound of ‘the fatal power which prevents one from attaining the goal of happiness’. Throughout the opening of the symphony, this sound of fate comes through. However, after a series of wondrous musical episodes, Tchaikovsky works his magic and joy is unleashed in the finale. If you perhaps feel that fate has been a bit rough on all of us these past couple of years, we invite you to come and experience the exhilaration of overcoming all obstacles.
Also joining us for the evening is one of the most sought-after young tenors in the world: Kang Wang. The Australian-Chinese singer is a rising star in the opera world and he will join forces with conductor Giordano Bellincampi to bring you some of the most moving tenor arias of all time, including Nessun Dorma from Turandot.
