ActewAGL Llewellyn One

The opening concert of the 2018 ActewAGL Llewellyn Series welcomes rising Australian guest conductor Dane Lam and presents a stimulating program of orchestral masterworks. Carl Vine’s terse and dynamic Microsymphony provides a vibrant reflection on transformation. The sensational Piano Concerto No. 2 by Prokofiev is a hair-raising, adrenalin-fueled work, which acclaimed soloist Tamara-Anna Cislowska will conquer with mastery. Commissioned by the Soviet state to commemorate victory over Germany, Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 9 is the antithesis of the anticipated majestic ode to military triumph—it expresses sardonic humour and irony rather than heroism. This perfect classical symphony is a playful and lively work loved by musicians and audiences alike.
