A Russian Gala
Behzod Abduraimov performs Tchaikovsky

The compelling artistry of Behzod Abduraimov in Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No.1, and Rachmaninoff’s most popular symphony.

Since Behzod Abduraimov’s Australian debut in 2012, he has transitioned from prodigy to career musician, becoming ‘the most perfectly accomplished pianist of his generation’ (The Independent) and earning him comparisons with towering figures like Horowitz, Cliburn and Ashkenazy.

This exciting virtuoso brings his amalgam of ‘fire and poetry’ to Tchaikovsky’s piano concerto – the ultimate Romantic masterpiece – a work he attacks ‘with aplomb and plays with grandeur and depth’ (The Times). Discover it afresh in Abduraimov’s hands.

Sweeping us from despair to joy, Rachmaninoff’s turbulent Symphony No.2 presents his eloquent melodies in full force. The young Lionel Bringuier possesses a ‘natural authority allied to deep musical understanding’, and he is attuned to the emotional twists and turns of Rachmaninoff’s mercurial personality.

‘‘A phenomenal technique and a dedication to integrity of interpretation shone out…’’
