Orli Shaham in Recital

Orli Shaham is fine-tuning an inventive program of Brahms and Brahms-inspired piano music for her 2017 Sydney recital.

It pivots around Brahms's late piano pieces – intensely felt music full of character and personality. They might be miniatures but together they make a majestic final statement. And Shaham complements them with music directly and indirectly inspired by Brahms, including Brett Dean's Hommage à Brahms – three pieces designed to be played as interludes to Brahms's Op.119. Also in store is music Shaham commissioned from Israeli-American Avner Dorman: two intermezzos based partly on pieces from Opp. 118 and 119, and a third that is all Dorman's own. After Brahms, she says, is "ingenious, sensuous and powerful". Combining her passion for Brahms's music and a deep intellectual curiosity, Shaham thinks of this recital as if she were grouping works of art together in the same room, with old and new providing mutual illumination.

The concert will conclude at approximately 8.55pm.
