Selby plays Mozart

Ravishing sounds
Inspired performance
Dates Thu 28 Mar, Fri 5 Apr Venues City Recital Hall, Sydney Opera House
Duration 1hr 20mins (no interval)

Drama and nostalgia come together with a Mozart piano concerto and gorgeous, decadent sounds from the Vienna of Gustav Klimt.

We regret to inform you that Geoffrey Lancaster, has, unfortunately, had to withdraw from the planned concerts with the Sydney Symphony due to health reasons. We are, however, extremely grateful to Kathryn Selby for agreeing to take over the performance

In this concert Kathryn Selby brings her virtuosity and imagination to Mozart's final piano concerto - music full of drama and tender expression.

A nostalgic mood is set up by Franz Schreker's Chamber Symphony, composed during World War I. Schreker was the ultimate Romantic at the dawn of a modern age. He shared with Mozart a theatrical instinct and exquisite craftsmanship. And with just 24 players he shapes a sound world of gleaming opulence and ravishing harmonies, sometimes firmly resting on its 19th-century heritage, sometimes dancing into a realm of shadows and nostalgia.
