Event Details

Many decades have passed since the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra performed Sibelius’ sublime Fifth Symphony. Conducting this remarkable work is TSO Chief Conductor and Artistic Director Designate, Eivind Aadland. While working on the Fifth, Sibelius likened the task to assembling the pieces of a giant mosaic. Multi-hued and radiant, the Fifth is a grand work of art – perfect in its details and enthralling it its overall sweep.

Spanish pianist Javier Perianes, who made such a strong impression performing the Grieg Piano Concerto with the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra in 2016, returns as soloist in Beethoven’s Third Piano Concerto, the composer’s only minor-key piano concerto and a work of high drama and heartfelt lyricism.

*Commissioned by the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra through the philanthropic support of the TSO Commissioning Circle.

Featured non-Australian music: Beethoven, Sibelius
