Finish the season with this monumental concert as Dr Nicholas Milton AM and the Orchestra bring you TITAN. This program concludes with Mahler’s epic First Symphony, a youthful work of genius alive with a superabundance of emotions, musical ideas and the pulse beat of fervent passion. This ceaseless ebb and flow is mirrored in a wide spectrum of musical styles, from child-like simplicity to transcendent profundity – folksong beside fugue, parody beside pathos, tempest beside tranquillity. Mahler himself wrote, “My First Symphony will be something of which the world has never heard the like before.”

The performance opens with Beethoven’s Egmont Overture, written as part of a set of incidental music for a play by Goethe, which deals with the theme of political oppression overthrown in the name of freedom – the triumph of good over evil.

Our soloist for this concert, performing one of the perennially evergreen violin concertos of the romantic period, is the Australian-based Canadian virtuoso Alexandre Da Costa.
