Russian musician Dmitry Sinkovsky is an extraordinary artist. He is equally proficient as a violinist and a countertenor. Imagine Fabio Biondi and Andreas Scholl embodied in the same performer, and you’ll have an inkling of what his concert with the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra is like. As a countertenor, Sinkovsky’s approach is similar to his violinplaying incarnation. Creating a convincing interpretation is just as important as achieving a beautiful sound. Sinkovsky is back, this time performing Vivaldi and Locatelli with the Brandenburg. City Recital Hall, 2 Angel Place, Sydney. Tickets: $30-$140. Bookings: 1300 782 856 or online. July 26-August 4.
