This concert is a major event. It’s the APO’s first international co-commission, and we’ve secured a major figure in contemporary music: the internationally acclaimed British composer Mark-Anthony Turnage. Gritty and earthy one moment, shimmering translucently the next, his music is full of surprises.

The premiere of Sibelius’ First Symphony, meanwhile, announced the arrival of a unique new voice on the musical landscape. From its desolate opening to its fiery conclusion, this piece pushed music into a completely new direction. These two, big works frame Mendelssohn’s utterly delightful First Piano Concerto.

Conductor: Christian Kluxen
Piano: Ingrid Fliter

Mark-Anthony Turnage: Symphonic Movements (Australasian premiere)
Mendelssohn: Piano Concerto No.1
Sibelius: Symphony No.1
