Elena Kats-Chernin: Recollecting ASTORoids
Mozart: Piano Concerto No. 21 in C major, K. 467
Dvorak: Symphony No. 6 in D major, op. 60
This fascinating program features the gorgeous music of Willoughby Symphony Orchestra’s 2015 Composer-in-Residence, Elena Kats-Chernin. Inspired by the soulful music of Astor Piazzolla, her sensational orchestral work Recollecting ASTORoids miraculously transforms a symphony orchestra into a giant tango band; a work that needs to be experienced to be believed.
This concert also features the accomplished Australian pianist Kristian Chong, performing one of the most perfect piano concertos ever conceived, Mozart’s entrancing C Major Concerto, memorably featured in the film Elvira Madigan. Guest conductor Warwick Potter will finish the program with the expressive colours of Antonin Dvorak’s beautiful Sixth Symphony.
This stirring symphonic masterwork is powerfully emotive and wonderfully evocative; prepare to have your spirits lifted by the dazzling orchestral writing and heart-throbbing brass section of the Willoughby Symphony Orchestra.
Featured non-Australian music: Mozart, Dvorak
