31 May & 1 Jun @ Perth Concert Hall ·
Presented by West Australian Symphony Orchestra ·

Seductive melodies and a little magic.

Prompted by his exile from Russia and composed as he grappled with history and faith, Rachmaninov’s gorgeous Second Symphony is a work bursting with seductive melodies of heart wrenching passion and beauty. Australian conductor Nicholas Carter, Principal  Conductor of the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra, returns to WASO with this romantic tour-de-force. The concert opens with Dukas’ famous work immortalised in Disney’s classic film Fantasia and Glazunov’s sweetly lyrical Violin Concerto, performed by the winner of the 2018 Singapore International Violin Competition, Sergei Dogadin.
