Presented by the West Australian Symphony Orchestra

Masters Series

A double concerto premiere and Boléro’s unstoppable energy!

Three colourful works frame Carl Vine’s Concerto for Two Pianos and Orchestra, given its world premiere in Perth by luminaries Piers Lane and Kathryn Stott.

First, Stravinsky’s witty and elegant Dumbarton Oaks, a neo-classical jewel of the repertoire inspired by Bach’s Brandenburg concertos. Then the jaunty satire of Prokofiev’s suite from the 1934 film Lieutenant Kijé. And finally, the hypnotic Boléro, building inexorably to a finale that’s nothing short of ecstatic!
