Ross Edwards’ Symphony No 1 Da Pacem Domine is the centrepiece of a program our musical director David Pye has devised especially for the vaulted ceilings and expansive acoustics of Fremantle’s glorious Basilica.

Popular Perth conductor Jessica Gethin directs this program of works spanning the romantic period. Beethoven’s rhythmically-charged Symphony No 7 and a Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto are the highlights.

Is there a more captivating work in the orchestral repertoire than Berlioz’ Symphony Fantastique?  Music that tells the story of an artist’s unrequited love, opium-poisoning, execution and afterlife. David Pye’s Fantasy for Clarinet and Orchestra is another narrative – based on the colourful fairy-tale Rumpelstiltskin.
