24-25 November @ Perth Concert Hall ◆
Presented by West Australian Symphony Orchestra ◆
A concert of Russian passion and power.
Rachmaninov’s Second Piano Concerto is a ravishing masterpiece, overflowing with lush, rich melodies that live long in the memory. Alexander Gavrylyuk is acclaimed worldwide for thrilling performances of this ever-popular concerto.
The bitter core of Shostakovich’s 1953 Tenth Symphony is its scherzo: a less than flattering portrait of Stalin, who died the same year. This deeply personal symphony journeys through foreboding, anguish and despair before tragedy and repression are finally – and exultantly – overcome in the thrilling finale.
“Every time (Gavrylyuk) enchants the public with his incredible virtuosity and thought-provoking playing.” – De Telegraaf (The Netherlands)
