Laureate of the Paganini Competition and former first violin of the famed Brodsky Quartet, Sydney Symphony Orchestra concertmaster Andrew Haveron is one of the most accomplished and sought after violinists on the planet. A masterpiece even among Tchaikovsky’s masterpieces, the Violin Concerto is the ideal vehicle for a violinist so utterly at home in Romantic repertoire. Offering both dazzling virtuosity and melting beauty, don’t miss this intimate and fiery journey into the Russian soul.

What could complement such astonishing music? Only Mozart’s greatest and final symphonic work, the Jupiter. Synthesising all of Mozart’s considerable art, this brilliant, clear and joyous work is the quintessential Classical symphony.
