Season Opening Gala
Benjamin Northey - Conductor
Simon Tedeschi - Piano
Aurora, Young Adelaide Voices
Sibelius - Finlandia
Grieg - Piano Concerto
Holst - The Planets
And we have lift off! The full strength of the orchestra is unleashed to launch 2019 in spectacular fashion. Destination: The Planets, Holst’s magnificent depiction of seven heavenly bodies and their astrological significance – from the terrifying march of Mars to Jupiter’s ode to a good time, and lastly the mystical transcendence of Neptune fading into the unknown.
Australian virtuoso Simon Tedeschi ignites proceedings with a popular and personal favourite: Grieg’s Piano Concerto. Power and poetry combined with a good dash of Norwegian spirit have made this a timeless classic. The evening roars to life with the brassy revs of Finlandia – a threatening darkness suddenly engulfed in light as Sibelius unfurls a hymn to his homeland. We’re up and away!
