Yulianna Avdeeva performs Chopin’s Piano Concerto No.1

Discover Yulianna Avdeeva’s dexterity and thrilling assurance in Chopin. Rediscover a Brahms chamber masterwork in a sumptuous orchestral setting.

Spell-binding Russian pianist Yulianna Avdeeva finds the tender vulnerability beneath the poised virtuosity of Chopin’s Piano Concerto No.1. The nocturnal core of this concerto is a Romanza of rapt beauty in which Avdeeva’s intimacy with Chopin’s art will be on entrancing display.

Avdeeva’s ‘dazzling dexterity and thrilling assurance’ have made her a Chopin interpreter of renown. Sydney critics raved about her 2018 Sydney debut recital: 'Avdeeva is a pianist of mastery and distinctiveness' (SMH).

The symphonic ambitions and intricacies of Brahms’s chamber masterpiece are realised in Arnold Schoenberg’s ravishing and revealing orchestration. Schoenberg transcribes the Piano Quartet with genuine love and imagination, capturing the burnished quality of a Brahmsian orchestra with a few modern touches that Brahms might have enjoyed, like the xylophone in the wild, gypsy-inspired finale.

Contemporary Polish composer Krzysztof Meyer also pays homage to Brahms, weaving the name and music of this favourite composer into a fascinating sonic tapestry.

‘‘Avdeeva’s detailed way of playing matched Chopin’s own’’
