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.
