A concert of sparkling colours, brilliant instrumental writing and expert musicianship. Triple-threat conductor (violinist and composer) Joseph Swensen brings his deep musical knowledge to the rich and complex challenge of Elgar’s Symphony No.2. Requiring precision ensemble playing and a feel for Elgar’s emotionally rich melodic language, this masterwork of English music from 1911 will be brought alive for our audiences.  

Joining Swensen on stage will be acclaimed Australian pianist Jayson Gillham, recognised as one of the most refined and elegant pianists of his generation. Jayson is known for his outstanding performances of Beethoven’s piano concertos so you can look forward to his interpretation of Beethoven’s sparkling Piano Concerto No.1.
