The ever-popular Overture to Die Fledermaus by Johann Strauss II begins a festive evening of orchestral music.
One of Australia’s most loved pianists, Simon Tedeschi, appears with PSO as soloist in George Gershwin’s glittering Piano Concerto in F. Commissioned immediately after Rhapsody in Blue by Walter Damrosch, this work explores more traditional concerto forms than Rhapsody in Blue.
A new work by Alex Turley, winner of PSO’s Young Composer Award will be premiered at this concert.
Completing the program are selections from the two Carmen Suites, drawn from one of the most performed operas in the repertoire, Bizet’s Carmen.
