The University of Melbourne Symphony Orchestra
25 Sep 2018, 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM
HUMPHRIES – Tides
ELGAR – Sea Pictures
SHOSTAKOVICH – Symphony No. 5
Debuting in Singapore, The University of Melbourne Symphony Orchestra will take you on an ocean voyage in the first half of this concert – first with Alice Humphries’ Tides and then with Elgar’s beautifully crafted setting of 5 sea poems, entitled Sea Pictures. The second half will immediately pull on your emotions – from despair to triumph – with Shostakovich’s Fifth Symphony which has remained one of his most popular works – the audience, in the première of this work, openly wept and cheered and gave the composer a 30-minute standing ovation.
Join world-renowned conductor Associate Professor Richard Davis as he leads Australia’s very best student classical musicians from Australia’s no.1 University*.
