David Helfgott in Recital

16 August 2014

Venue: Concert Hall  View Seat Map
Presented by: Andrew McKinnon

David Helfgott is one of Australia's best loved pianists, renowned for his passionate performance of the romantic repertoire.


Following the worldwide success of the Oscar-winning film SHINE, based on his inspiring life story, this remarkable musician now has a huge international following.

Central to the film was Helfgott's performance of the Rachmaninov piano concerto No 3, one of the most demanding works in the entire piano repertoire.

In this very special recital, he embarks on another huge challenge when he performs, for the first time in public, a dazzling arrangement of the "Rach 3" for two pianos.

In place of the orchestra, David will be joined by acclaimed pianist Rhodri Clarke, an internationally sought after accompanist, who has worked with famous singers such as Bryn Terfel and Rolando Villazon.

In the first half of the programme, David will perform
  the Italian Concerto by Bach and one of Beethoven's most brilliant sonatas, the Appassionata.

David Helfgott in Recital is proudly presented by Andrew McKinnon.
