French pianist Cédric Tiberghien returns to WASO in an exhilarating concert featuring Rachmaninov’s Third Piano Concerto. Fiendishly virtuosic and powerfully emotional, “Rach 3” is an all-time audience favourite. Bartók wrote his folk-influenced Dance Suite to mark the 50th anniversary of the unification of the Hungarian cities of Buda and Pest. His Miraculous Mandarin Suite is one of the twentieth-century’s most dazzling scores, a dangerously seductive portrayal of lust and violence - dramatic, mysterious and sinister. “Tiberghien’s technique is formidable, but it’s his intensity and poetic impulsiveness that catch the ear.” - Boston Globe

Two of the greatest living French instrumentalists perform together for the very first time in Australia in a highlight of the WASO season - the world premiere of Swiss composer Richard Dubugnon's Eros Athanatos. Setting the scene is Debussy’s Ibéria, music of dazzling expressive power, drenched in the intoxicating sounds of Spain. To conclude, Ludovic Morlot unleashes Rachmaninov’s Symphonic Dances – music of taut muscularity that showcases all the exceptional colours of the orchestra.
