SATURDAY 19 MARCH, 7PM
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.
