PROGRAM: BRAHMS Piano Concerto No.1, Op.15 & TCHAIKOVSKY Symphony No.5, Op.64

ORCHESTRA: The Sydney Youth Orchestra 

CONDUCTOR : Alexander Briger

SOLOIST:  Simon Tedeschi

In this special performance by The Sydney Youth Orchestra to commence what will be an exciting

year of music-making, our friend and mentor Simon Tedeschi will feature as guest soloist.

Brahms’ first piano concerto is a young man’s composition; from the stormy emotional opening

to the musical portrait of Clara Schumann, the work is full of anguish and passionate revelation

rarely found in his later music. 

Tchaikovsky too favoured the expressive side of composition, and while many of his peers

were caught up in Russian nationalism, he was an intensely emotional man who regarded

music as a lyrical medium. Is there any symphony more immediately moving than this

one? Nowhere is Tchaikovsky less subtle, and nowhere more effective.
