Penrith Symphony Orchestra's 30th Anniversary Gala Concert

Sat 26 May 2018
7.20pm Talk and 8.00pm Concert
It’s time for a party as PSO celebrates 30 years of music making. The program gives a nod to history while also looking forward to the future. An exciting program of much loved classics, premiere performances and star soloists.

Paul Terracini - conductor

Michael Kieran Harvey - piano

Penrith Symphony Orchestra

J STRAUSS II - Kaiser Walzer
TBA - New works by WSU/PSO young composers
TCHAIKOVSKY - 1812 Overture
HARVEY - Homage to Liszt
RACHMANINOV - Piano Concerto No. 2

The joy and sophistication of Strauss’s Kaiser Walzer opens the evening. Originally written as a toast to the German Emperor from his Austrian counterpart, the work’s warmth and charm are as apparent as ever.

Two new works will be premiered – by the winners of the Western Sydney University composition prize and the PSO Young Composer Award – before the first half concludes with the festive fireworks of Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture.

PSO presented Rachmaninov’s Piano Concerto No. 2 at its very first concert in 1988. Internationally renowned Australian pianist Michael Kieran Harvey joins the orchestra in 2018 to perform this monumental and much-loved work. It is preceded by the pianist’s own dazzling solo composition, Homage to Liszt.

Duration Approximately 120 min with a 20 min interval.

Join us for a talk before the performance at 7.20pm at the Allan Mullins Studio.

Bookings and enquiries should be directed to the Box Office. Bookings can also be made online via the Visit Website link below.
