Borodin: Overture from Prince Igor
Grieg: Piano Concerto in A Minor
Tchaikovsky: Polonaise and Waltz from Eugene Onegin
Sibelius: Symphony No. 5
Conducted by Thomas Sanderling
One of the greatest Russian regional orchestras, which has toured extensively throughout Europe and the rest of the world, comes to Perth to perform with pianist Pavel Kolesnikov.
Pavel will be performing one of Grieg's greatest works, his Piano Concerto in A Minor.
The orchestra will be performing the Overture from Borodin's Prince Igor and the colourful Polonaise and Waltz from Tchaikovsky's lyric opera Eugene Onegin. To bring the 50th Anniversary Festival to a majestic close is Sibelius' Symphony No. 5, one of the most popular symphonies by the Finnish composer.
“Pavel Kolesnikov is an engrossing musician. He is perhaps the most introspective and meditative pianist that I know of, and with his deep and delicate sensitivity to sound, he is able to bring out a sophisticated gradation of colours particularly in the quieter ranges of the instrument. He is a poet of the piano, rather than say, a novelist or a storyteller.” Bachtrack, October 2018
