Event Details

When Korean pianist Joyce Yang won the Van Cliburn silver medal she was only 19 years old – her captivating presence and musical authority belied her petite appearance. Since then she’s made her New York Philharmonic debut with Lorin Maazel and begun appearing with some of leading conductors of our age – they all say she’s a musician to watch. Her playing has been praised for its grace and wit, and its combination of musicianly refinement and Romantic flair.

In her imaginative program for Sydney, Joyce Yang will set the scene with music of our own time – the spectacular and magical Gargoyles of Lowell Liebermann and the impulsive rhythms of Carl Vine’s irresistible piano sonata, commissioned for the Sydney Dance Company. Debussy, Chopin and Liszt’s re-imagining of Wagner provide elegant impressions. And the finale is a late work of Liszt – a dazzling blend of two Spanish dances, one dark-hued and compelling, the other full of spontaneous vigour.

Featured non-Australian music: Liebermann, Debussy, Chopin, Wagner, Liszt
