Poetic lyricism and the perfect pianist.

Spanish pianist Javier Perianes returns to WASO following his acclaimed 2016 debut. Described as “a pianist of impeccable and refined taste”, his poetic sensibility makes him the perfect pianist for Beethoven’s Fourth Piano Concerto. In 2016 Simone Young brought us a superb interpretation of Bruckner’s Fourth Symphony. Now she turns her insightful musicianship to his Sixth, the most original of all his symphonic works. Bold and dramatic, it also features one of Bruckner’s most sublime and heart-breaking slow movements.

“In the Spanish soloist Javier Perianes, the work found an ideal exponent… seldom, if ever, have I encountered such a combination of evident modesty and utter brilliance.” – The Sunday Times
