Arvo Pärt is one of the world’s most performed living composers. Fratres, his haunting soundscape for strings and percussion, sets the scene for a very special world premiere - The Tides of Longing by Lachlan Skipworth and Jay Emmanuel, the story of a young refugee’s voyage and memories of home.

Fate lies at the heart of Tchaikovsky’s Fifth, a thrilling journey from anguish to elation. Following his WASO debut in 2022, Eduardo Strausser returns to conduct this enthralling concert.
