    Event description

    The Cygnus Arioso Winter Gala is a celebration of our extended musical family, bringing together our cherished musical collaborators for an afternoon of effervescent music-making. We hear two works of Mahler: first the Adagietto from his 5th symphony spotlighting harpist Will Nichols before we are joined by acclaimed mezzo-soprano Ashlyn Tymms for his sublime Ich bin der Welt abhanden gekommen. The Cygnus Arioso String Orchestra shines in an expanded version of Wolf’s Italian Serenade, before again adding harp for Schoenberg's atmospheric and melodic Notturno. Bassist Oakley Paul stars alongside Cygnus Arioso director Akiko Miyazawa in Bottesini’s rollicking Gran Duo Concertante, and Boccherini’s 7th Cello Concerto showcases young sensation Isaac Davis. Perth-born trumpeter Fletcher Cox and WASO principal cor anglais Jonathan Ryan beguile in Copland’s Quiet City, before Fletcher reprises Lachlan Skipworth’s trumpet concerto Altiora Peto, promising an uplifting conclusion to this unmissable event.
