Event Details

Take a walk on the wild side with conductor Jessica Cottis, fresh from her debuts with the Los Angeles Philharmonic and London Symphony Orchestra, in a program that will transport you from the wilderness of Tasmania to the rugged landscapes of Scotland. Inspired by a visit to the pristine waterway of Bathurst Harbour on Tasmania’s South West Coast, Nigel Westlake (best known for his scores to the Babe films), wrote his incredible concerto Spirit of the Wild in 2017 for renowned oboist Diana Doherty, who joins the Canberra Symphony Orchestra this year as Artist in Focus.

Mendelssohn was inspired to write his third symphony while on a walking tour of Scotland and the work is infused with the stormy darkness of the Scottish landscape and the lively folk music of its people. They share a program with Beethoven’s overture to his only ballet, The Creatures of Prometheus, and Ross Edwards’ mysterious and rapturous Ecstatic Dances.

Featured non-Australian music: Beethoven, Mendelssohn
