Acclaimed French conductor Ludovic Morlot directs two exceptional works that revel in the vivid colours of a virtuoso orchestra.

Dvorák’s earthy and dynamic Ninth Symphony, � his musical love letter to the New World, was performed at WASO’s very first concert in 1928!

Debussy’s Ibéria is music of dazzling expressive power, drenched in the intoxicating sounds of Spain. Rachmaninov’s spirited orchestral masterpiece, Symphonic Dances, contains some of his finest and most original music. “The Frenchman swept the orchestra to great heights. The orchestra played with greater flexibility, adventure and boldness…” De Volkskrant (The Netherlands)

Ninety years later, it is still adored for its youthful energy and wistful Largo movement, simultaneously joyous and profound. The concert begins with an exciting world premiere from award-winning West Australian composer Lachlan Skipworth.
