Joyce Yang Performs Grieg’s Piano Concerto

Every day until Sun 19 May 2024
Starting from $45
Grammy-nominated pianist Joyce Yang brings her ‘vivid and beautiful playing’ (New York Times) to a program that excites on every level.

Grieg’s Piano Concerto is a work that is colourful and intensely lyrical, with a beautiful Adagio and a folk music-inflected final movement. And don’t miss Yang letting loose in the wildly entertaining cadenza.

Dvořák was inspired to write his New World Symphony after moving to America and experiencing its open spaces and sense of freedom. The work is packed with memorable melodies and delightful tension. He incorporated American roots music and Black spirituals into his vast musical canvas, creating a new musical language for a new world.

This is also a rare opportunity to hear work by Missy Mazzoli, a ‘symphonic composer with a photographer’s eye’ (NPR). These Worlds in Us is wonderfully cinematic, with a real sense of yearning and all her hallmark inventiveness.
