'Rach 2' is one of the most enduring and loved concertos in the piano repertoire. Completed in 1901, it cemented Rachmaninoff's reputation as a concerto composer, and has remained popular ever since. By turns virtuosic and lyrical, it is one of the most exhilarating and exciting works in the standard repertoire. 

We are thrilled to be joined by Phillip Shovk as soloist. One of Australia's foremost pianists, Phillip has played as a soloist, chamber musician and accompanist all over the world, and been the recipient of numerous prestigious awards and prizes, including at the Sydney International Piano Competition. 

Tchaikovsky's Sixth Symphony is another work that almost needs no introduction. It has been a firm concert favourite since its premiere in 1893, just nine days before the composer’s death. Tchaikovsky titled it 'the passionate symphony', and it is a work full of passion - soaring themes and intense orchestration. (This title was subsequently mis-translated into the French 'Pathétique', which is how it is known today.)
