WASO with the Australian String Quartet.

Of all Beethoven’s symphonies, his seventh is the most thrilling. More than 200 years since its premiere, its driving momentum pulses with red-blooded vitality. In the hands of conductor Ludovic Morlot, Beethoven’s seventh will lift you up from your seat as it climaxes with a finale of wild abandon and unrestrained joy.

Beethoven’s powerful overture sets the scene for Absolute Jest, John Adams’ witty and playful take on the ecstatic energy of Beethoven’s music, performed here with the Australian String Quartet.
