Hoang Pham’s annual Concerto Concert returns this year featuring Rachmaninoff’s epic Third Piano Concerto.
Spanish and Russian flair dominate in this Concerto Concert. In 1909, Manuel de Falla began composing a set of nocturnes for solo piano which he ultimately transformed into an evocative work for piano and orchestra. The same year also featured the premiere of Rachmaninoff’s Third Piano Concerto, a work that has achieved almost mythological status as one of the hardest pieces to conquer at the piano. This program also features the Australian premiere of American composer Michael Daugherty’s Night Owl.
