Exotic landscapes and a defiant musical portrait.As your Orchestra prepares for its first international tour in a decade, Asher Fisch and WASO present a selection of the works they will perform in Beijing and Shanghai. Peter Sculthorpe’s Kakadu is an Australian classic, a stunning portrait of an iconic landscape.

Saint-Saëns’ EgyptianConcerto is a glittering and exotic showpiece, a perfect vehicle for the sophisticated charm and brilliance of Jean-Yves Thibaudet. Shostakovich’s deeply personal Tenth Symphony was written in the wake of Stalin’s death. Tragedy, menace and repression are exultantly overcome in the Symphony’s thrilling finale.
