For the month of March, I’ve selected a list of piano concerts happening in Sydney – I am very excited to see some of them and hopefully that will inspire you to get out and listen to some beautiful music:
- Nelson Freire plays the Emperor by Sydney Symphony at the Sydney Opera House. This concert is strongly recommended for intermediate and advanced piano students. Nelson Freire is an acclaimed Brazilian classical pianist. He is playing Beethoven’s majestic Emperor concerto with the Sydney Symphony. As a child prodigy, he performed one of Beethoven’s Piano Concerto at the age of 12. One of the most anticipated concerts in 2018 for the piano lovers – there are not many tickets left so call to book seats.
- Simon Tedeschi plays with Sydney Symphony at the Sydney Opera House (11th March 2pm). Celebrated Australian pianist Simon Tedeschi is playing excerpts from a variety of piano concertos including Tchaikovsky, Grieg, Rachmaninov and Gershwin. It will be a fascinating concert as he challenges the idea and necessity of having a conductor for performing piano concertos. Recommended for advanced and intermediate students. Entrance is $39.
- Stalin’s Piano at City Recital Hall (15th March 7:30pm). This concert is recommended for adult students. It is a concert with political connotations, as the pianist Sonya Lifschitz weaves piano music with audio / video recordings of eminent artists and political figures of this century. An interesting idea with a 4.5 star rating by Limelight. Entrance is $30.
- There are also lunchtime piano concerts held at the Sydney Conservatorium. All performed by Conservatorium students, with no entry fee (only gold coin donations). 14th March, 21st March & 22nd March all at 12:30pm. Check out the program for more details.
Enjoy and hope to see some of you at the concerts!
