Brahms: Violin Concerto in D
Mussorgsky: Pictures at an Exhibition (arr Ravel)

Paul Terracini: Conductor

The KPO begins its 50th anniversary year with a celebration of mature mastery, outstanding talent and enduring friendships. Concertmaster of the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, Andrew Haveron make his first appearance as a soloist with the orchestra to perform Brahms's magnificent Violin Concerto.

Inspired by the paintings of his late friend and creative ally Viktor Hartmann, Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition portrays a delightful range of characters and scenes, while Carl Vine's Microsymphony presents an image of the modern city, energised by the rhythms of machines.
