Side by Side

Concert or Performance

26 Jul 2019

West Australian Symphony Orchestra (WASO) and the Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM) present Side by Side.

In the summer of 1941, when Shostakovich played the first two movements of his Seventh Symphony to friends, German forces besieged Leningrad.

In an extraordinary work that echoes the sounds of war, and explores heroism and humanity at its core, WASO is joined on stage by some of Australia’s most talented young and emerging artists from ANAM to bring Shostakovich’s massive score to life.

Written for an orchestra that includes 8 horns, 6 trombones, 2 harps, a piano and a full complement of percussion instruments, Simone Young joins us to conduct this special side by side program.
