THE PERFORMANCE

An instant classic, Rhapsody in Blue never fails to excite. Full of memorable tunes and brilliant orchestral effects – starting with the irresistibly sleek upward slide on the clarinet – Rhapsody in Blue pulsates with brassiness, energy and Jazz Age glamour. Bernstein’s On the Town likewise swings with big city vitality.

For a taste of the Old World, the concert concludes with Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony, the most energetic of the composer’s nine symphonies. Kazuki Yamada, who has been described by the London Telegraph as ‘a star in the making’, returns to the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra as conductor.
