Queensland Symphony Orchestra presents a double bill of great nineteenth century Romantic works.

Wander with us, and Byron’s hero Harold, through the wild Abruzzi mountains and the villages of Italy, as leading violist Antoine Tamestit performs Berlioz’s great work under the expert baton of Darrell Ang.

Then lose yourself as our lush music sweeps and unfolds through the Concert Hall, depicting all the turbulence and passion of Manfred, Byron’s tortured romantic hero.
