It’s horn playing of the highest calibre, and it’s home-grown! Andrew Bain is now the Principal Horn of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, but he grew up in Adelaide and began his career with the ASO. We welcome him back with a specially commissioned Horn Concerto from Australian composer Paul Dean, a brand new work to showcase his hard-won mastery of this noble instrument.
Our own ASO horns have some special parts to play too. Richard Strauss’ trailblazing tone poem features a vaulting horn theme at its centre that perfectly encapsulates the shameless audacity of Don Juan. And Shostakovich’s masterful Tenth Symphony seems destined for a tragic end until a horn call deﬁantly lights up its third movement, like a beacon of hope.
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.
*World Premiere co-commissioned by the ASO and Aspen Music Festival.
