Sydney Symphony Orchestra | Mozart and Poetic Inspirations
An intriguing showcase of extraordinary music.
The Sydney Symphony returns to The Joan in Penrith for a brilliant night of three chamber pieces that capture the sensuous depth and drama of night, directed by the Sydney Symphony’s Concertmaster Andrew Haveron, alongside mezzo soprano Anna Dowsley.
Arnold Schoenberg’s Transfigured Night is based on a poem by German poet Richard Dehmel and features an emotionally charged scene between two lovers. It opens with an extraordinarily atmospheric section that draws us into the layered weight of night.
Mozart’s Serenata Notturna is classically elegant and entertaining. And Respighi’s rare jewel Il Tramonto is based on a poem full of changing colours, moods and delicate harmonies. Just like the sunsets for which it is named.
Make sure you’re part of this intriguing showcase of extraordinary music at The Joan, Penrith.
