Dazzling violinistics.

Emma McGrath, celebrated Concertmaster of the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra, steps into the spotlight as soloist in the third and final violin concerto by French composer Camille Saint-Saëns. Dedicated to Spanish virtuoso Pablo de Sarasate – one of the most lauded of violinists – the Third Violin Concerto will dazzle and delight.

Composed at a time when women were excluded from professional life, the concert opens with Fanny Mendelssohn’s only existing work for orchestra, the Overture in C, and closes with brother Felix’s Symphony No 5 ‘Reformation’.

On the podium is trailblazing South Korean Shiyeon Sung, conducting the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra for the first time.
