Soloists and Spontaneity - Concert Hall, QPAC - Tickets

Conductor Alondra de la Parra
Piano Sergio Tiempo 2018 Artist-in-Residence

Stravinsky Concerto in E flat (Dumbarton Oaks)
Rachmaninov Concerto No.1 in F sharp minor for Piano and Orchestra, Op.1
Bartók Concerto for Orchestra

It’s not just Alondra de la Parra and Sergio Tiempo who star in this concert – you can glimpse all of the orchestral players as soloists in these winning works. Stravinsky’s Dumbarton Oaks kicks off proceedings and recalls Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos in its bustling themes, but its shifting metres, syncopation and severe tonality is unmistakably Stravinsky! Written in 1891, the teenage Rachmaninov’s first piano concerto then electrifies with its incredible piano work and opulent harmonies. Finally, Bartok’s Concerto for Orchestra spotlights orchestral sections, duos and individuals in a pacy finish. Bravo!

The Queensland Symphony Orchestra Music Director is proudly supported by Tim Fairfax AC. The Artist-in-Residence program is supported by the Trevor & Judith St Baker Family Foundation and The University of Queensland.
