Enigmatic Elgar and Romantic Rachmaninov

Olivia DAVIES Stratus (world premiere)
Sergei RACHMANINOV Piano Concerto No.2
Edward ELGAR Enigma Variations

Asher Fisch conductor
Konstantin Shamray piano

One of the greatest of all English orchestral works, Elgar’s captivating Enigma Variations is a touching and nostalgic musical portrait of friends and family. The exhilarating pianist Konstantin Shamray joins WASO and Asher Fisch to take on arguably the greatest of all piano concertos, Rachmaninov’s stormy and romantic Second. We open the concert with the shimmering atmospherics of Olivia Davies’ new work Stratus.

Olivia Davies’ Stratus commissioned by Prue Ashurst.

“Shamray is a pianist of great intelligence matched by tremendous power. He is more than a match for the full orchestra...”

Our 2021 Season is planned to be delivered in Phase 5 or 6 of the Western Australian Government’s easing of COVID-19 restrictions. That means we are planning to present our events with no physical distancing required.
We will do everything in our power to present the program listed but, as we all know, we may have to vary the repertoire or artists should Government guidelines or travel restrictions change. If that happens, we will let you know. For more information, read our 2021 Program Changes page
