David Robertson begins his final season as Sydney Symphony Orchestra's Chief Conductor with a concert of music celebrating the power of the orchestra. Taras Bulba is composer Janáček’s homage to the fearless spirit of Russia, personified by the 16th-century Cossack hero. Depicting three scenes from Nikolai Gogol’s epic novel, Taras Bulba is intense, vast, violent and vividly colourful. Bartók’s Concerto for Orchestra is a modern classic – a sensational showcase for a hundred brilliant musicians in full flight, especially in the thrilling whirlwind of a finale. Steve Reich’s iconic minimalist works have influenced classical, electronic and pop music. In the same tradition as Bartók’s concerto, his latest work is for an ensemble of soloists within a larger orchestral background. Reich’s shimmering music pulses with life.
