Willoughby Symphony Presents Titan

Alexandre Da Costa

The Willoughby Symphony finishes its 2019 season with this monumental concert as Dr Nicholas Milton AM and the Orchestra bring you TITAN. This program concludes with Mahler’s epic First Symphony, a youthful work of genius alive with an bundance of emotions, musical ideas and the pulse of passion.

The performance opens with Beethoven’s Egmont Overture, written as part of a set of incidental music for a play by Goethe, which deals with the theme of political oppression overthrown in the name of freedom – the triumph of good over evil.

Our soloist for this concert, performing one of the evergreen violin concertos of the romantic period, Bruch’s Concerto No 1, is the Australian-based Canadian virtuoso Alexandre Da Costa.
