Hear Rachmaninoff performed by this powerhouse duo
Following her debut in 2014 as a young artist at the Salzburg Festival in Mozart's The Abduction from the Seraglio für kinder, Australian lyric coloratura soprano Alexandra Flood has graced opera and concert stages throughout the world. In 2021, she made her debut with the Opéra National de Paris in one of the leading roles in Benjamin Britten's The Rape of Lucrecia, before featuring in a gala concert of Mozart arias at the Festival d'Aix-en-Provence. Cementing her place on stage in European concert halls, she will perform with the Volksoper Wien for their 2022-2023 season in leading roles in Die Zauberflöte, La Bohème and more.
Concert pianist Konstantin Shamray burst onto the international music scene when he won both Judges’ and People’s Choice prizes at the Sydney International Piano Competition in 2008. Since then, he has enjoyed critical acclaim for his performances with orchestras and chamber music groups around the world.
Together, this duo will delve into romantic, powerful repertoire including works by Rachmaninoff and Schubert. Sample the intensity and beauty of solo voice and piano in the Utzon Room, paired with stunning water views and the superb acoustic of Jørn Utzon’s own design.
