2019 Concert Series

 

CONCERT ONE – PARADISE FOUND, PARADISE LOST

Sunday 31st March, 2019, 2:30pm at the Performing Arts Centre, Central Coast Grammar School

Beethoven – Symphony No. 6 (Pastoral) 

Gorecki – Symphony No. 3 (Symphony of Sorrowful Songs)  Soloist – Ayse Goknur Shanal

Paradise found, pleasant feelings arriving in the countryside, a revitalising storm and a community unites. Paradise lost, a mother’s inconsolable grief on the loss of a son, a young Jewish girl imprisoned, the Western World decays.

 

 

 

CONCERT TWO – FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE

Sunday 30th June, 2019, 2:30pm at the Performing Arts Centre, Central Coast Grammar School

Tchaikovsky – The Voyevoda 

Prokofiev – Romeo and Juliet Suite 

Shostakovich – Cello Concerto no. 1,  Soloist – Sebastien Hibbard 

Forbidden love, betrayal, manic mood swings. A star struck couple from feuding families. What is their future? A prominent governor reacting to his wife’s infidelities. A gunshot in the dark. Did he kill her? Or himself? A solo musician converses with many. Twitchy obsessive, nervous anxiety. Heartfelt lyricism, caustic wit.

 

 

 

CONCERT THREE – THE GERMAN MASTERS OF FATE

Sunday 22nd September, 2019, 2:30pm, at the Performing Arts Centre, Central Coast Grammar School

Schumann – Julius Caesar Overture  

Beethoven – Symphony no. 5

Brahms – Double Concerto,  Soloists – Karina Moss-Hollands (Violin) and Caroline Otto (Cello)

Fate knocks. Et tu, Brute? Death, a necessary end, will come when it will come. You too, Ludwig? Enlightenment, liberation, resistance. A super instrument – violin and cello – restore austerity and discipline.

 

 

 

CONCERT FOUR – BLUES, REVIEWS & AVENUES

Sunday 1st December, 2019, 2:30pm at the Performing Arts Centre, Central Coast Grammar School

Bernstein – Symphonic Dances from West Side Story 

Ravel – Piano Concerto in G, Soloist – Gareth Szakos 

Special guest artists from Palm Tree Studios

Classical turns jazzical. Swinging syncopation, wailing brass, the blues. The Sharks against the Jets.  A tang of colours, bustling, brilliant, exuberant.
Follies, Tonys and Broadway regards.
