You know how special it is to receive a long, hand-written letter from a very close friend? Here is something like that: two intensely personal works from composers who mastered the art of musical expression. Dvořák’s Cello Concerto is an outpouring of wordless song, unmistakeably tinged with homesickness.

Tchaikovsky called his final symphony ‘the most sincere of all my creations’, and the passionate tale it weaves is utterly gripping.

Cellist Li-Wei Qin is already a favourite with Australian audiences, having grown up here, but this will be the first time the ASO plays under conductor Long Yu. The director of several of China’s biggest orchestras and festivals, Long Yu is a leading figure in China’s burgeoning classical music scene.
