|Zelman Symphony begins its 2016 season with a spectacular combination of Tchaikovsky Firsts. His thrilling first piano concerto, once considered “unplayable”, sits alongside his beautiful, evocative and exciting first symphony.|
Tchaikovsky’s first piano concerto is amongst the best known of all piano concertos and one of his most popular works. Hoang Pham, one of Australia’s most exciting young musicians, plays the concerto he performed so brilliantly to win the 2013 Symphony Australia Young Performer of the Year Award.
Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 1, Winter Daydreams, is his earliest notable composition – in 1883, he wrote that “although it is in many ways very immature, yet fundamentally it has more substance and is better than many of my other more mature works.”
Mark Shiell will present a pre-concert talk in the auditorium commencing 7.30pm.
