22 & 23 November @ Perth Concert Hall ·
Presented by West Australian Symphony Orchestra ·
In this illuminating concert, Principal Conductor Asher Fisch explores how great composers transformed works originally conceived for solo keyboard into the orchestral masterpieces that we know and love.
The concert features Leopold Stokowski’s spectacular, “Hollywood” version of Bach’s famous Toccata and Fugue. Australian soprano Siobhan Stagg performs sublime Strauss songs in both their original and orchestral versions. Asher himself explores how the raw intensity of Mussorgsky’s most radical piano work was transformed into a sophisticated orchestral showpiece by one of the masters.
