The agonies and ecstasies of life.

Lauded for drawing a precise and sensitive balance of joy and sorrow through his music, Estonian conductor Hendrik Vestmann returns to Perth following a triumphant season with Barrie Kosky's The Magic Flute. Here, he explores the agonies and ecstasies of fate in Tchaikovsky’s irresistible Fifth Symphony, journeying from a bleak funeral march to a powerful conclusion. Hailed as “the real deal” and “nothing short of magnificent”, Armenian-born Narek Hakhnazaryan is already one of the finest cellists of his generation. He brings his formidable technical prowess to one of the most difficult works in the cellist’s repertoire, Shostakovich’s First Cello Concerto.
