12 May 2021 to 13 May 2021 Once Only Event
Simon Hewett – Conductor
Sine Winther – Piano
Canberra Symphony Orchestra
Piano Concerto No. 2
Selections from Romeo and Juliet
Based on Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, Prokofiev’s ballet score of the same name is an exhilarating and ultimately devastating depiction of such perilous desire. It is a work of mighty opposites: joy and grief, fate and chance, life and death.
Though not marred by such ‘violent ends’, Richard Meale’s Viridian is equally evocative.
Rachmaninov’s second piano concerto dances between light and shade, full of lyrical melodies and exhilarating crescendos.
