Murray Perahia in Recital

At the Sydney Opera House

Piano virtuoso
One night only
Date Fri 1 Nov Venue Sydney Opera House
Duration 2 hours (incl. 20-min interval)

The first appearance in Australia of one of the great pianists of our time - not just a virtuoso, but a true musician.

Shortly before we launched our 2013 concert season, we received a note: 'Mr Perahia very much looks forward to having his Australian debut in Sydney!'

Now we're delighted to announce the program for the first appearance in Australia of one of the great pianists of our time. Murray Perahia begins his solo recital with the music of Johann Sebastian Bach, with whom he's been so closely associated for twenty years. Beethoven's brilliant and tumultuous 'Appassionata' sonata sits at the heart of the program. And in the second half he gives us enticing miniatures by Schumann (Faschingsshwank aus Wien) and the inspired musical poetry of Chopin.

A recital to remember!

Pre-concert talk by David Larkin at 7.15pm in the Northern Foyer.
