Have you ever had a wildly ambitious dream? Sibelius dreamt of becoming a virtuoso violinist. He couldn’t do it – so he composed a haunting, deeply-felt Violin Concerto for others instead.

Grace Clifford, from Sydney, is living Sibelius’s dream. She won the ABC Young Performer of the Year award playing with the ASO in 2014, and we are thrilled to have her back. Come and hear two dreams fulfilled!

Hector Berlioz, in his twenties, fell hopelessly in love with an actress. So he wrote the Fantastic Symphony, pouring all the agony and ecstasy of unrequited love into a musical story. Ride the emotional roller coaster as the hero’s romantic obsession leads him from the heights of bliss into a fantastical nightmare!

Messiaen wrote Le Tombeau resplendissant aged 23. This musical meditation both dances and sings from the heart. Messiaen buries youthful strife and looks ahead in faith to maturity and resurrection.
