 Plus Liszt's Second Piano Concerto


The sun rises on Debussy’s daydreaming faun as acclaimed French conductor Ludovic Morlot returns to WASO with this blissful program. Music of high spirits and delicious melodies culminates in Ravel’s irresistible depiction of lovers at daybreak that will dance into your heart.

Australian pianist Jayson Gillham has emerged as one of the finest of his generation. Here with WASO, he brings a sparkling clarity to Liszt’s richly intense second piano concerto.
