A heroic triumph over fate.
Inspired by the ideals of the French revolution and the German Enlightenment, Beethoven’s Eroica Symphony is also a deeply personal statement. This exhilarating and ground-breaking work is a triumph of artistic will over tragic adversity.
Vaughan Williams drew inspiration from the musical glories of Tudor England in his Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis, a sublime fusion of sacred music and folksong.
Iain Grandage is one of Australia’s most exciting, creative and collaborative composers, and his new Concerto is written especially for longtime colleague and friend, WASO’s Principal Cor anglais, Leanne Glover.
