Bernstein’s electric Overture to Candide is the fanfare opening to a concert of some of Queensland Symphony Orchestra’s best-loved music. Featuring favourites of musicians and audiences alike, this program radiates pure joy.
There is something for everyone; Kats-Chernin’s delicate Dance of the Paper Umbrellas is plucked straight out of a fairytale, while Sibelius’ hymn to victory, Finlandia, brims with stormy drama. Featuring our 2023 Young Instrumentalist Prize winner, Ein Na, Saint-Saens’ fiery Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso is a show of incredible virtuosity, thrilling until its final beat. From Beethoven to Tchaikovsky, Sibelius to Strauss, this jam-packed concert is a smorgasbord of musical delights, all under the baton of Eduardo Strausser.
