From its suspense-filled opening, Scheherazade plunges you into a world of high drama. Colourful scenes unfurl around you, a twist at every turn, all gorgeously carried by musical themes that have influenced artists the world over.
Rimsky-Korsakov uses musical cliff-hangers to dazzling effect in his retelling of this classic tale about the power of story to transport us. It’s hard not to be moved by this music, especially with Chief Conductor Simone Young leading us to a place so captivating.
In his Concerto for the Left Hand, Ravel embraced the challenge of writing for Paul Wittgenstein, a war veteran who had lost an arm. Ravel created an epic work – a triumph of artistry that places no limits on expression. Cédric Tiberghien, who frequently collaborates with Simone Young, has performed this piece with the Berlin Philharmonic and brings his masterful interpretation to Sydney.
Award-winning composer Unsuk Chin draws inspiration from Ravel in Frontispiece, a work full of drama and surprise providing a spectacular opening for this vibrant program.
