Australian pianist Andrea Lam showcases her incredible talents with Russian composer-pianist Sergei Rachmaninov’s formidable First Piano Concerto.
Lam made her concerto debut with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra when she was just 13-years-old and has never looked back, now enjoying an exciting international career that sees her performing in venues from the Sydney Opera House to Carnegie Hall. She joins conductor Nicholas Milton in a concert that opens with the frenzied whirling of Ravel’s La Valse, features Matthew Hindson’s glittering The Stars Above Us All—written for the HUSH Music Foundation—and culminates in Modest Mussorgsky’s well-loved Pictures at an Exhibition.
Mussorgsky’s most popular piano work, which guides the listener through a musical art gallery, past vividly depicted scenes from the mighty Gates of Kiev to the witch Baba-Yaga’s magical hut on hen’s legs, will be performed in Ravel’s magnificent orchestration.
