The Metropolitan Orchestra
In their first Met Concert for 2017, The Metropolitan Orchestra (TMO) under the baton of Artistic Director and Chief Conductor Sarah-Grace Williams will start the year with a magnificent program of genuine masterworks from Sibelius and Brahms.

TMO welcomes back young Australian virtuoso violinist Anna Da Silva Chen as soloist for Sibelius’ beautiful Violin Concerto. The only ever concerto written by Sibelius, this work is highly regarded not only for its technical difficulty, but also for its virtuosic style being both masterly and exhilarating.

“What an amazing way to start our ninth performance season with such celebrated works from both Sibelius and Brahms. We’re thrilled to again feature the passion and energy of the wonderful Anna Da Silva Chen for the Sibelius’ Violin Concerto. Anna is a huge favourite with TMO sharing a wonderful chemistry and connection with both the audience and musicians. When coupled with the magnificent Brahms First Symphony, we are honoured to be able to present a truly grand program that will kick off our 2017 season in a night to remember,’ said Sarah-Grace Williams.

The second half of this evening of true masterworks features the legendarily timeless work of Brahms’ First Symphony. Almost 20 years in the making, the first Symphony is a tour de force regarded as one of the greatest symphonies ever written highlighting passionate contrasts from the explosively forceful and dramatic, through to gentle meanderings in what can only be regarded as a magnificent musical journey.
