The RCO will perform works that have played an important role in its history. Its first program will feature Stravinsky's Firebird Suite and Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 5, composed in 1888, the year the orchestra was founded. The second program comprises Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 3 with soloist Yefim Bronfman, widely regarded as one of the most talented virtuoso pianists performing today, and Richard Strauss's Ein Heldenleben, a work the composer dedicated to the RCO.

The Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra comprises 120 players hailing from over 20 countries, including former Australian Chamber Orchestra violinist Jane Piper who has been with the orchestra since 2011.

Previous tours in the World Orchestra Series were by the London Philharmonic with Vladimir Jurowski in 2009 (Brisbane and Perth), the Berlin Philharmonic with Sir Simon Rattle in 2010 (Perth and Sydney) and the Vienna Philharmonic with Christoph Eschenbach in 2011 (Perth, Brisbane and Sydney).
