This concert includes a special work commissioned by the ASO with the support of the Schueler Composition Award (2010), established through the generosity of Mr Norman Schueler and Mrs Carol Schueler, in honour of Mrs Gogo Schueler.
Bernd Glemser, with rock solid technique and take-no-prisoners virtuosity, is equally at home with Liszt’s wonderfully macabre bravura and the quicksilver brilliance and wit of Rachmaninov.
Shostakovich’s Fifth Symphony, originally titled‘A Soviet Artist’s Reply to Just Criticism’, with the uniquely visceral excitement of its climaxes, is one of the few twentieth-century symphonies to acquire the coveted status of a ‘classic’. Is there an undercurrent of cynicism and irony beneath the epic dimensions? You be the judge.
Featured non-Australian music: Rachmaninov, Liszt, Shostakovich
