Sydney Symphony Orchestra to Return to The Art House

Sydney Symphony Orchestra returns to the Central Coast with a stunning piano program.

The Sydney Symphony Orchestra’s sold-out debut on the Central Coast in 2018 saw a full house of 500 music fans experience an evening of Mozart by some of Australia’s finest musicians.

In a dream for classical music fans and due to huge demand, The Art House will be bringing the Orchestra back to the venue as part of The Art House Presents Program 2019 and showcasing The Art House’s stunning Yamaha Grand C7 piano which will be played by virtuoso pianist Alessio Bax.

Combining exceptional lyricism and insight with consummate technique, Alessio Bax is without a doubt “among the most remarkable young pianists now before the public” (Gramophone). He catapulted to prominence with First Prize wins at both the Leeds and Hamamatsu International Piano Competitions, and is now a familiar face on four continents, not only as a recitalist and chamber musician, but as a concerto soloist who has appeared with more than 100 orchestras.

Alessio will be performing Mozart’s final piano concerto, Piano Concerto No.27 in B flat. This, Mozart's final piano concerto, stands apart for its sober perfection and innocent directness. The concerto’s slow movement suspends time with a melody as serene as it is simple, played with disarming grace by a pianist who communicates the radiance of this music. This is one of the composer’s most personal works: reflective, nostalgic and songful.

The evening’s program also includes Mendelssohn’s Hebrides Overture. Mendelssohn visited Scotland’s Hebridean Islands when he was twenty and the incredible seascape and otherworldly Fingal’s Cave inspired one of his best-known works, and one of the greatest soundscapes in orchestral literature.

Finally, Beethoven’s Eighth Symphony will pack a punch with its unstoppable energy. Overshadowed by its bigger siblings, the Eighth is cheekily radical music. Instead of a grand statement, this is the symphony as a bundle of vivacious energy.

Tickets to the Orchestra’s debut Central Coast concert sold out with months to spare, so fans of fine music will need to book early to secure your spot for this incredible classical experience.
