This week, September 6, Queensland Symphony Orchestra will showcase an exceptional array of female talent for the eighth in its Maestro series for 2018.
Conducted by female powerhouse- the internationally acclaimed Alondra de la Parra, this concert features the Australian female soloist- Tamara Anna Cislowska on piano and will premiere new music from Australian female composer -Elena Kat Chernin in the form of her Piano Concerto No. 3. A trifecta of classical music girl power!
The Concert will appeal to a wide audience as it includes Prokofiev’s first Symphony nicknamed the ‘Classical’.
You’ll also hear Beethoven’s famous seventh Symphony. Full of energetic dance- like sections and rhythmical wit, this Symphony also includes ‘Allegretto’ which was featured to accompany ‘The King’s Speech’ by King George VI when he was played by the one and only Colin Firth.
Natalie Low ( Second Violin) said, Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7 has been a long standing favourite of mine. The first movement fills me with absolute joy. The playing of the second movement during ‘The King’s Speech’ was utterly poignant.
For an appreciation of the wonderful female talent our Queensland Symphony Orchestra has to offer this Spring, head to the Concert Hall and let yourself go with the Maestro Concert – Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony. The Concert will start at 7:30 pm in our own beautiful Concert Hall, QPAC. This triple treat of women artists will be in Brisbane for one night only!
