Yulianna Avdeeva performs Chopin’s Piano Concerto No.1

Concert or Performance

15 May 2019 to 18 May 2019

Spell-binding Russian pianist Yulianna Avdeeva finds the tender vulnerability beneath the poised virtuosity of Chopin’s Piano Concerto No.1 alongside the Sydney Symphony Orchestra.

Avdeeva’s ‘dazzling dexterity and thrilling assurance’ have made her a Chopin interpreter of renown.

The symphonic ambitions and intricacies of Brahms’s chamber masterpiece are realised in Arnold Schoenberg’s ravishing and revealing orchestration. Schoenberg transcribes the Piano Quartet with genuine love and imagination, capturing the burnished quality of a Brahmsian orchestra with a few modern touches that Brahms might have enjoyed, like the xylophone in the wild, gypsy-inspired finale.

Contemporary Polish composer Krzysztof Meyer also pays homage to Brahms, weaving the name and music of this favourite composer into a fascinating sonic tapestry.
