Rachmaninov's 150th Anniversary Chamber Music Concert

When

Sunday 3 December 2023 from 3pm to 5pm

Cost

Adult: $30Concession: $20

Be immersed by elegiac and passionate works of chamber music by great Russian composers: Pyotr Ilych Tchaikovsky, Sergei Rachmaninoff and Nikolai Medtner.

Please join us in this end of year concert as we conclude the 2nd part of the _“Rachmaninoff-150” _series - an acknowledgment and tribute to the composer's legacy in the development of pianistic and musical idioms, along with his most influential contemporaries. 

This program includes some of the finest chamber music revolving around the piano - from the early works of the younger composer, Nikolai Medtner's 3 Nocturnes for violin and piano (after Goethe's Nachtgesang) to Rachmaninoff's nostalgic cello sonata, concluding with Tchaikovsky's monumental piano trio in A minor.

The deep musical connections between Medtner, Rachmaninoff, Tchaikovsky laid across generations, reflecting the Russian lineage where the senior composers would praise, support and promote the music of the young.

Eminent pianists Ching Pong (Dono) Ng and Alexander Yau will be joined by aspiring young talents: violinist Beatrice Colombis and cellist Noah Oshiro.
