The Art House Presents

The Sydney Symphony 
Britten's Serenade

Intimate Dreamscapes

Benjamin Britten is a legend of 20th century music; a prolific composer who wrote film music, opera, choral music and symphonies. But he’s perhaps most celebrated for his chamber music, and two of these remarkable works are presented by the musicians of the Sydney Symphony. In a rare treat, they will be joined by Stefan Dohr, acclaimed Principal Horn of the Berlin Philharmonic and the sensational Australian tenor Andrew Goodwin, who will together reveal Britten’s compelling genius.

The rebellious, creative spirit also marks Dimitri Shostakovich’s work, celebrated here with a rare performance of this beautiful and powerful Chamber Symphony, which captures the soul of one of the Russian’s great, lyrical string quartets.


Benjamin BRITTEN Prelude and Fugue for 18 Solo Strings, Serenade for Tenor, Horn and Strings
Dimitri SHOSTAKOVICH arr. BARSHAI Chamber Symphony (after the String Quartet No.10)
