Kirill Gerstein performs Grieg’s Piano Concerto

Concert or Performance

7 Aug 2019 to 10 Aug 2019

Composer Sibelius’ evocation of Finnish legend En Saga (A Saga) emerges from freezing mists of swirling strings and growling brass. Listen as the Sydney Symphony Orchestra perform a piece as dark as a northern winter.

Bracing Scandinavian air permeates Grieg’s piano concerto, billowing though its heart-stirring melodies. Kirill Gerstein, whose formidable technique is matched by his distinctive musicianship, takes on this crowd-pleaser.

And Sydney Symphony Chief Conductor David Robertson leads us on a wild trip in Berlioz’s semi-autobiographical hallucination, Symphonie fantastique. The delirious artist chases his beloved through dreams, ballrooms, the countryside, his own beheading and a witches’ sabbath! Berlioz promised to ‘stagger the world’ with this symphony, and he delivered: this is music of pure sensation.

Presented as part of the Sydney Symphony’s Keys to the City Festival.
