HSO celebrates its affinity with contemporary American composer, Michael Daugherty with the Australian Premiere of his 2022 work, Valley of the Moon. A work reminiscent of the majestic redwood forests of Sonoma County in California, it highlights how music amplifies our appreciation of the natural world.

Holst’s Fugal Overture to his opera The Perfect Fool, is an intense and exciting work, filled with syncopation and cross-rhythms.

One of the finest pianists of his time, Rachmaninoff premiered his third piano concerto with the New York Symphony in 1909.

Well-known from the 1996 Australian film Shine, the concerto is known for its sprawling chords and lush orchestral textures.
