BEETHOVEN, Symphony No.7, Op 92 in A Major
Sydney Youth Orchestra erupts into 2010 with a tantalising program performed with unbridled youth and vigour – you will leave wanting more! Indulge your rhythmic senses with music from across the globe and across the ages. Revel in the blend of Spanish folk melodies in Rimsky-Korsakov’s Capriccio espagnol and be the first to hear Daniel Rojas’s melting pot of Chilean-Spanish-African rhythms in the world premiere of his second piano concerto Between Rituals and Street Parties, featuring the winner of the prestigious 2008 Sydney International Piano Competition, Konstantin Shamray.This piece has been commissioned for the Sydney Youth Orchestra and Konstantin Shamray by Ars Musica Australis.
Daniel Rojas writes about his work:
'Many forms of Latin American music are a blend between Western, Indigenous and African musical traditions. Similarly, many forms of religious music and practices of this culture blur boundaries between the sacred and the profane. My second piano concerto, Entre Ritos y Parrandas celebrates this rich cultural and musical diversity by juxtaposing adrenalised salsa, tango and Indigenous Peruvian gestures with the solemnity of Christian hymns and framework of Western classical forms.'
Plus Beethoven’s mighty Symphony No.7, voted 5th in ABC Classic FM’s 2009 Classic 100 Symphonies, infused with such rhythmic intensity that Richard Wagner called it the ‘apotheosis of the dance’.
Featured non-Australian music: Rimsky-Korsakov, Beethoven
