In one concert, Queensland Symphony Orchestra, violinist Barnábas Kelemen and conductor Eduardo Stausser present us with the immense and the intimate.

On a trip to Scotland in 1829, German composer Felix Mendelssohn was gobsmacked by the natural rock formation known as Fingal’s Cave and was inspired to create The Hebrides - a legendary piece of classical music full of lapping water and mysterious beauty.

Barnábas Kelemen performed the Brahms Violin Concert with Queensland Symphony Orchestra last year and audience and reviewers all agreed: the Hungarian violinist was a revelation. ‘Not only a master of his instrument but also of the concert stage’ (Stage Whispers) and ‘a big personality on stage … his execution was supernaturally good’ (Limelight Magazine). You won’t want to miss the chance to hear him perform the beautiful Violin Concerto No.4 by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

Finally, take a deep breath and let go of the concept of time and space for the mighty Symphony No.4 of Anton Bruckner. From hushed opening through to transcendent finale, it will be one of the most powerful orchestral experiences of the year.
