6 and 7 April, 7:30PM @ Perth Concert Hall ·
Presented by West Australian Symphony Orchestra ·

A dazzling concerto and Tchaikovsky’s powerful ‘Fate’ symphony.

Composed when he was just 21, Mendelssohn’s spirited First Piano Concerto positively overflows with precocious, youthful bravura. Argentine pianist Ingrid Fliter’s sublime musicianship perfectly showcases its crystalline passagework and charming melodies.

Israeli conductor Dan Ettinger makes his WASO debut with the brilliant whirlwind of Shostakovich’s Festive Overture and Tchaikovsky’s passionate Fourth Symphony, an emotionally gripping masterpiece that wrestles with fate and emerges gloriously triumphant.

“Ingrid Fliter brings out all of Mendelssohn’s melodic genius while deftly handling all of the work’s demands on the virtuoso.” – Classic FM
