ASO’s Chief Conductor, Arvo Volmer, raises the curtain on our 2013 Season with Benjamin Britten’s dazzling orchestral showpiece, Variations and Fugue on a Theme of Purcell in this, the centenary year of the composer’s birth. Croatian-born pianist Dejan Lazić makes his Adelaide debut in the most-loved piano concerto in the repertoire, Rachmaninov’s glorious Second Piano Concerto.
Volmer directs the ASO in Beethoven’s protean Fifth Symphony described by ETA Hoffman as "that most wonderful composition - as climax after climax climbs on and on, and leads the listener imperiously forward into the spirit world of the infinite!”
