Hear an exclusive concerto performance by the Grand Prize winner of the 2020 Sydney International Piano Competition. One of the world’s most gruelling piano competitions, it is held only once every four years. Two weeks before this concert, Camerata will accompany the six finalists in the Grand Final at Sydney Town Hall before bringing the winner home with them! This will be the greatest Wild Card Mystery Guest they have ever presented, and they look forward to sharing this exquisite program with you. While they can’t tell you what the winner will play, they can tell you that they’ll open the concert with Aaron Copland’s Hoe-Down from his ballet, Rodeo, a work that is enthusiastically received whenever they play it. You can also expect a sense of French perfume, style and elegance in a world première arrangement for string orchestra of Debussy’s String Quartet by Queensland arranger, Gail Aitken. The concert also includes the exquisite Concertino, a lesser known gem by the great Australian composer, Margaret Sutherland.
