Willoughby Symphony Orchestra: Rhapsody

Next date: Saturday, 27 July 2024 | 07:00 PM to 09:00 PM


Hear the prize-winning Australian-based, Russian-born pianist perform Sergei Rachmaninov’s brilliant Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, a glittering showpiece of astounding virtuosity, under the baton of Chief Conductor and Artistic Director Dr Nicholas Milton AM.

Alongside this showstopper, WSO performs Alexander Borodin’s lively Polovtsian Dances from Prince Igor and one of the 20th-century’s most fascinating works, Dmitri Shostakovich’s mighty Fifth Symphony, written amidst the danger and oppression of Stalin’s Russia.

Konstantin Shamray made waves in the Australian and international music scene when he won both Judges’ and People’s Choice prizes at the Sydney International Piano Competition in 2008, performing with the Sydney Symphony under the baton of Nicholas Milton. Since then, he has enjoyed critical acclaim for his performances with orchestras and chamber music groups around the world.

"Shamray was exhilarating in both concerts, playing with fearless command of the instrument, sparkling power, and a faultlessly clear technique." Adelaide Review
