The Greatest Love - Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra


Thu 26 May 2016, 7:30pm

Where: Auckland Town Hall - Great Hall, 303 Queen St, CBD, Auckland

Restrictions: All Ages


Garry Walker - Conductor
Alexander Gavrylyuk - Piano

Tchaikovsky Romeo and Juliet Fantasy Overture
- Chopin Piano Concerto No.2
- Prokofiev Romeo and Juliet (selections)

The story of Juliet and her Romeo drew from both Tchaikovsky and Prokofiev some of their most inspired music. The love theme in Tchaikovsky’s meditation on the story is one of his supreme melodies. Prokofiev’s ballet is cinematic in its depiction of the senseless feud, the desperate lovers, and the silence of the tomb after the tragedy has run its course.

In between these two narrative pieces, romantic music of a different kind. Ukrainian-Australian pianist Alexander Gavrylyuk plays the delicate, melancholic concerto of that incomparable poet of the piano, Chopin.
