Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra
Federation Concert Hall 1 Davey Street
Settle in for a night of plush harmonies, heart-on-the-sleeve melodies and luxuriant orchestral sonorities with two of the most beloved works in the repertoire – Rachmaninov’s Second Piano Concerto and Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony. Ukrainian-Australian pianist Alexander Gavrylyuk is intimately acquainted with the music of Rachmaninov, having performed the complete concertos with leading orchestras around the world. Powerful, full-bodied and nuanced, his playing is perfectly suited to the intricate demands of Rachmaninov’s cherished work. Equally treasured is Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony, with its tender melodies, brilliant flourishes and stirring climaxes.
