Australian Chamber Orchestra Piano Quintets
July 21, 2014 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm$41 – $110
Slavic melancholy and joy.
Satu Vänskä performs firecracker showpiece Subito on the Australian Chamber Orchestra’s Stradivarius violin, launching into a chamber music concert of Slavic melancholy and joy.
Written just prior to the Nazi invasion of the USSR, Shostakovich’s Piano Quintet is a dramatic and harrowing premonition of the coming terror.
Melting away the turbulence of Shostakovich is the bright, melodious joy of Dvořák’s piano quintet, one of the greatest pieces of chamber music in the canon. Internationally regarded for performances of “immense power and an extraordinary range of colours” (New York Times), Finnish pianist Paavali Jumppanen is our perfect partner for these stirring works.
Please note there will be a pre-concert talk in the Salon Auditorium, and a post-concert CD signing by pianist Paavali Jumppanen in the ground floor foyer.
Presented by Australian Chamber Orchestra
