This concert is all about the colour of sound and three master composers for the orchestra - from 19th-century Germany, 20th-century France and the Australia of here and now.
It begins with French impressions of English jigs and springtime dances - subtle and evocative. Then there's a brand new piano concerto, composed for pianist Piers Lane by a composer who sometimes describes his music as "radically tonal" - big tunes and Technicolor richness.
Finally, Brahms's Second Symphony brings warm colours and a lyrical mood - easy-going Romantic impulse shaped by Classical genius.
Featured non-Australian music: Debussy, Brahms
