Music: Side by Side

26 July @ Perth Concert Hall ·
Presented by West Australian Symphony Orchestra ·

NEW! West Australian Symphony Orchestra and the Australian National Academy of Music present Side by Side.

In the summer of 1941, when Shostakovich played the first two movements of his Seventh Symphony to friends, German forces besieged Leningrad. In an extraordinary work that echoes the sounds of war, and explores heroism and humanity at its core, WASO is joined on stage by some of Australia’s most talented young & emerging artists from the Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM) to bring Shostakovich’s massive score to life. Written for an orchestra that includes eight horns, six trombones, two harps, a piano, and a full complement of percussion instruments, Simone Young joins us to conduct this special side by side program.

Music: Mozart at the Opera

16 September @ Government House Ballroom ·
Presented by Music on the Terrace ·

Mozart himself conducted the first performance of this work in Vienna, and it has become a favourite in opera houses around the world.

The hero Belmonte, assisted by his servant Pedrillo, attempts to rescue his beloved Konstanze from the harem of Pasha Selim. In this performance we present a chamber music version, an opera without singers, perfectly suited to the intimacy of Government House Ballroom and featuring outstanding guest performers and resident musicians of the Australian National Academy of Music in Melbourne.

Phillip Lambert – Narrator
Nick Deutsch – Oboe
David Thomas – Clarinet
Lyndon Watts – Bassoon
