In a celebrated Sydney tradition, Chief Conductor Simone Young opens our season with one of Mahler’s sublime symphonies in a concert of passionate and electrifying music.

Mahler’s Fifth Symphony is an extraordinary creation in both sound and scale. Under the dynamic direction of Simone Young, Mahler’s vast architecture is revealed, and his stunning colours burn bright.

A rising star, French composer Camille Pépin has created an enchanting expression of life’s technicolour with her Violin Concerto. A work of long, shimmering chords, suspended and weightless, has a peerless interpreter in Renaud Capuçon, who, together with Simone Young, gave the world premiere of the work with the Orchestre National de France in April 2022. Co-commissioned by the Sydney Symphony, it’s our turn to hear this duo deliver Pépin’s compelling new work.
