Monday 3 July, 2017

Sydney Symphony Orchestra

Orli Shaham is planning an inventive program around Brahms’s late piano pieces. They’ll be matched with music inspired by Brahms, including Brett Dean’s Hommage à Brahms – three pieces designed to be played as interludes to Op.119 – and “ingenious, sensuous and powerful” music commissioned from Israeli-American Avner Dorman. Old and new providing mutual illumination.
