Breaking boundaries with size, scale and emotional content, Beethoven reimagined the possibilities of the symphony with his Third Symphony. 

With these concerts, Icelandic phenomenon Víkingur Ólafsson makes his Australian concerto debut. Ólafsson’s exquisite performances have captivated audiences and inspired legions of new classical fans. He brings a contemporary touch to Ravel’s Piano Concerto, an ideal challenge for a soloist of such virtuosity. 

Principal Guest Conductor Sir Donald Runnicles, renowned for creating experiences of great expressive power and distinction, leads these performances.
