*view multiple performance dates above

Tickets through WASO

Presented by West Australian Symphony Australia

MACA Limited Classics Series

What better way to celebrate WASO’s 90th anniversary year than with Beethoven’s majestic Ninth Symphony! This is music of life-affirming exaltation, a glorious celebration of universal brotherhood.

Beethoven’s Choral Fantasy is a dazzling piano solo, a concerto and a large-scale choral work all in one! Asher Fisch is both soloist and conductor in this unique work of grandeur and lyricism, in which Beethoven foreshadows his own Ninth symphony and its iconic ‘Ode to Joy’ finale.
