Music: Javier Perianes Plays Beethoven

2 and 3 August @ Perth Concert Hall ·
Presented by West Australian Symphony Orchestra ·

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

Music: Side by Side

26 July @ Perth Concert Hall ·
Presented by West Australian Symphony Orchestra ·

NEW! West Australian Symphony Orchestra and the Australian National Academy of Music present Side by Side.

In the summer of 1941, when Shostakovich played the first two movements of his Seventh Symphony to friends, German forces besieged Leningrad. In an extraordinary work that echoes the sounds of war, and explores heroism and humanity at its core, WASO is joined on stage by some of Australia’s most talented young & emerging artists from the Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM) to bring Shostakovich’s massive score to life. Written for an orchestra that includes eight horns, six trombones, two harps, a piano, and a full complement of percussion instruments, Simone Young joins us to conduct this special side by side program.
