The National Capital Orchestra,
conducted by Leonard Weiss, continues its tradition of combining exciting new
Australian works with traditional favourites of the orchestral repertoire. This concert features the world premiere of
Michael Dooley’s Piano Concerto no. 1
performed by acclaimed pianist Andrew Rumsey.
Playing one piano with four hands – but a
unified artistic mind, Eva-Maria Zimmermann and Keisuke Nakagoshi are ZOFO; a ‘20-Finger Orchestra’
For this performance they have commissioned a ‘Pictures at an Exhibition’ – seeking out composers from 14 countries and asking them to choose a piece of visual art from their own culture, and then write a short piece inspired by it. The result is ZOFOMOMA – an unforgettable multimedia concert experience.
This recital presents the music of
Tchaikovsky, Mussorgsky, Kabalevsky and Shostakovich in a collection of nursery
rhymes and lullabies. The mood will be both bright and dark, the full gamut of
emotions being drawn from the Russian repertoire.
Vocal performances are by Merlyn
Quaife, Christina Wilson and Andrew Goodwin, accompanied by pianist Andrea
Katz, who is also the group’s director.
