Celebrate the return home of your Adelaide Symphony Orchestra, when we present a program that will grace the most esteemed concert halls of China and South Korea this October. Led by our Artist in Association, the legendary Pinchas Zukerman, this exciting three week tour will see the ASO take this repertoire to the international stage before performing it here at the Adelaide Town Hall.
Now, this is music with personality! But whose is it? Elgar’s Enigma Variations are inspired by real people, friends of the composer – a diverse company whose portraits come alive each time they are performed. Pinchas Zukerman is an ideal host, generous and gregarious, bringing them all together for a convivial evening with us.
Zukerman’s own chance to shine comes in the assured elegance and seemingly endless melody of Mozart’s Fifth Violin Concerto. But Mozart’s mercurial temperament also shows through – look out for playful digressions in the rondo!
Enjoy Beethoven’s ‘Egmont’ Overture as a sort of aperitif or antipasto before all these guests arrive!
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.
