Three voices of Russia: a festive overture commissioned for a commemoration of the Revolution; a sparkling concerto infused with the gypsy-like sounds of Armenia; and a grand symphony full of aching sorrow, searing passion and dramatic gestures.

The virtuosic trumpet concerto by Soviet/Armenian composer Alexander Arutiunian is one of the most popular works in the twentieth-century repertoire for the instrument. Its fiery rhythms will sizzle in the hands of Sydney Symphony principal trumpet, David Elton.

Richard Hair’s Perpetuum Mobile is a youthful composer’s exploration in symphonic texture and was a runner-up in the 2009 2MBS-FM/Willoughby Symphony Young Composer Award. This is its first performance.

Duration: approx 120 minutes including interval.

Free Artist Talk: 7.20pm, Allan Mullins Studio.
