Shamray performs Rachmaninov

From Rachmaninov with Love

Intense might be an understatement. Notoriously challenging to play, Rachmaninov’s Third Piano Concerto is a torrent of emotion, melody and colour and demands a truly virtuosic performance.

Who better to perform it than fellow Russian, Konstantin Shamray – winner of First Prize and People’s Choice at the 2008 Sydney International Piano Competition?

In another patriotic pairing, Mark Wigglesworth conducts one of the finest of British works, Elgar’s First Symphony. While it took Elgar ten years to write, its instant worldwide success proved it was worth the wait.

SAFETY IS OUR PRIORITY

The Sydney Symphony will continue to apply NSW Public Health Orders as they relate to ticketing and seating arrangements. As these Orders can change at very short notice, we will be allocating seats closer in time to concert dates than we have in previous seasons. This will allow us to maintain a COVID-19 safe environment.
