‘A love of piano playing evident from the very first notes.’ The Advertiser
Hoang Pham is a former winner of the prize for the Best Australian Pianist at the Sydney International Piano Competition and ABC Symphony Australia Young Performer of the Year Award. As a baby, Hoang immigrated to Australia from Vietnam with his parents and it was here in his new home that he discovered his love for playing the piano. Hoang was featured in 2014 alongside a dozen other international classical musicians in Limelight Magazine's "30 Brilliant Musicians Under 30". This piano recital is his only Sydney performance for 2018.
Written at the end of the 18th century, the opening of Beethoven's ‘Pathétique' Sonata continues to impress today for its dramatic power. Twenty years later, the ailing Schubert would complete his own Sonata in C minor. Only months away from his death, this work remains one of Schubert's crowning achievements. Johann Strauss’ famous 'Blue Danube’ Waltz provides the dashing conclusion to this program which also includes popular works by Brahms, Rachmaninoff and the thrilling Chopin Ballade in G minor.
