Unforgettable music of destiny and protest
Wolfgang Amadeus MOZART Piano Concerto No.21 “Elvira Madigan”
Dmitri SHOSTAKOVICH Symphony No.5
Mark Wigglesworth conductor
Jayson Gillham piano
Mozart’s Piano Concerto No.21 is instantly recognisable. Immortalised in the 1967 film Elvira Madigan, it’s a showcase of the composer’s skill at weaving a supremely lyrical melody into a full-bodied sound world. This sublime concerto is brought to life by one of Australia’s finest pianists, Jayson Gillham.
Shostakovich’s Fifth is one of the most dramatic and thrilling symphonies of the 20th century. Composed under acute political pressure during Stalin’s regime, Shostakovich may have veiled his symphony’s true meaning, but let nothing suppress its devastating musical power.
