When Russians begin a story, it’s worth paying attention. Rimsky-Korsakov’s symphonic retelling of The Arabian Nights brings these fantastic tales to life in vivid orchestral colour. Fall under the spell of Scheherazade’s violin and be swept up in an exotic adventure: perilous sea voyages, mysterious princes, a romance, a chase, a storm… Conductor Hendrik Vestmann, with his wealth of operatic experience, is sure to deliver an especially dramatic account.
Shostakovich’s explosive Festive Overture cracks open the champagne on 2020, and then Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto begins as a quiet heart-to-heart between soloist and orchestra. Grace Cliﬀord, our Emerging Artist in Association, will draw listeners in to Tchaikovsky’s increasingly passionate narrative, leading us to its audacious, vivacious ﬁnale.
Your concert ticket includes entry to The Mingling Room, a free one hour talk held in the Meeting Hall, located just behind Adelaide Town Hall.
