French pianist Cédric Tiberghien returns to WASO in an exhilarating concert featuring Rachmaninov’s Third Piano Concerto. Fiendishly virtuosic and emotional, “Rach 3” is an all-time audience favourite
Dates: Aug 23 - 25, 2018
Venue / Address: Perth Concert Hall 5 St Georges Terrace, Perth
Exotic colours from Bartók and Rachmaninov's virtuosic Third Piano Concerto.
The concert opens with Bartók’s folk - influenced Dance Suite, written to mark the 50th anniversary of the unification of the Hungarian cities of Buda and Pest. His Miraculous Mandarin Suite is one of the twentieth-century’s most dazzling scores, a dangerously seductive portrayal of lust and violence - dramatic, mysterious and sinister.
“... pianist Ce´dric Tiberghien, was almost spookily unfazed by the wildest demands of the keyboard part and summoned a great deal of colour and expressive power.” - The Baltimore Sun
