About Diana Doherty performs Ross Edwards

Ross Edwards is one of our nation’s most prominent composers. His writing has drawn inspiration from Australia’s natural life and landscape to present a unique vision of place.

In this special event celebrating Ross Edwards' 80th birthday, Chief Conductor Simone Young presents a performance in light, sound and movement at the superb Concert Hall.

Ross Edwards’ Oboe Concerto was created especially for the Sydney Symphony and our Principal Oboe Diana Doherty in 2002, inspired by her virtuosity and richly expressive playing. It’s a dynamic work in three movements that tells stories of the natural world, cultures colliding, love and dance. Layering Western musical styles over bird calls and traditional Australian sounds, it provides a stunning, glowing representation of our land.

Continuing this rich and enduring partnership, the Sydney Symphony has commissioned a new work by this esteemed Australian composer for this concert.

Edwards’ music often draws inspiration from the beauty of nature, and in Ralph Vaughan Williams’ buoyant, optimistic and lush Eighth Symphony, with its depiction of England’s green and pleasant land, we find a clear musical connection. Personally chosen by Simone Young to contrast with the Australian landscapes so redolent in Ross Edwards’ music, it is a perfect companion in this celebratory concert.
