Experience the work of America’s most performed living composer, John Adams, as the MSO and Australian String Quartet perform his witty and inspired take on Beethoven’s spirited scherzos in Absolute Jest – a large-scale work celebrating Beethoven’s energy and feeling with chugging rhythms and imaginative orchestral colours.

In the second half, Beethoven’s final symphony brings together soprano Jacqueline Porter, contralto Liane Keegan, tenor Henry Choo, bass Shane Lowrencev and the MSO Chorus for one of the greatest works of the repertoire.

Often referred to as the ‘Choral Symphony’, this large scale combined orchestral and choral work is a triumphant expression of humankind, with Friedrich Schiller’s Ode to Joy being one of its many high points. Join the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra for this must-see musical event of the year and experience ‘the symphony to end all symphonies’ (The Guardian).
