Alexander Gavrylyuk Performs Tchaikovsky

1 - 4 November 2023

In the Concert Hall

Sydney Symphony Orchestra

Classical Music

Sensational pianist Alexander Gavrylyuk astounds with his exquisite interpretation of Tchaikovsky’s First Piano Concerto.

Passions of the Soul

With its exquisite melodies, sweeping drama and delicate introspection, Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No.1 is full of expressive power.

Performed by Alexander Gavrylyuk, Tchaikovsky’s work is the perfect showpiece for a pianist praised by the Sydney Morning Herald as bringing the “finest pianistic art” to the stage.

The Sydney Symphony’s Principal Guest Conductor Donald Runnicles brings Debussy’s evocative Images for Orchestra to life in deft, musical strokes. In these beautifully rendered Impressionist visions of England, Spain and France at the dawn of the 20th century you can almost see the bustling streets and undulating landscapes. Here it’s contrasted by Dutilleux’s Métaboles, a work of imaginative and subtle transformations, creating a dreamlike map of a new, spellbinding soundworld, interweaving ideas and structures.
