Concert duration: 1h34

Pictures at an Exhibition is a deeply personal work, composed in memory of Mussorsgky’s friend and painter Victor Hartmann. Our guest conductor Dmitri Slobodeniouk will revel in the composer’s bold musical language, where bright resplendent colours are woven together into rich and sonorous harmonies. His supreme musicianship will be sure to bring this music alive. Introducing the concert is Janácek’s brilliant Sinfonietta. A true ‘original’, Janácek’s music is vivid and on a grand scale, with brash brass sonorities and quirky woodwind tunes that amuse and entrance. Such bold brass timbres also take centre stage in Australian composer Brett Dean’s Trumpet Concerto, newly commissioned by virtuoso trumpeter Håkan Hardenberger, who we are thrilled to welcome back to perform with us.

Free pre-concert talk 45 minutes prior to concert.
