5 & 6 July @ Perth Concert Hall ·
Presented by West Australian Symphony Orchestra ·

A Russian spectacular.

Estonian-born Hendrik Vestmann makes his WASO debut with Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony. This irresistible work explores the agonies and ecstasies of fate, journeying from a bleak funeral march to a powerful conclusion. Hailed as “the real deal” and “nothing short of magnificent”, Armenian-born Narek Hakhnazaryan is already one of the finest cellists of his generation. He brings his formidable technical prowess to one of the most difficult works in the cellist’s repertoire, Shostakovich’s First Cello Concerto.

5 and 6 October @ Perth Concert Hall ·
Presented by West Australian Symphony Orchestra ·

Superstar cellist Gautier Capuçon returns to WASO to perform Tchaikovsky’s delightful Variations on a Rococo Theme, a work that combines elegance and grace with daring displays of technical brilliance.

Making his WASO debut, French conductor Ludovic Morlot directs two evocative tone poems by Sibelius and Debussy that reflect the sea, like impressionist paintings rendered with music. The iridescent glint of sunlight on gentle waters, crashing waves and fearsome storms are portrayed with glistening, vivid orchestral colour.

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
