Our Chief Conductor and Artistic Director, Lee Bracegirdle opens the year with a fittingly symbolic Walk to the Paradise Gardens by Delius. This is a stunningly beautiful work that will seduce you into it’s charms from it’s opening notes to it’s final sigh. POWER & PARADISE includes in its programming the dramatic irony and contrast of Mozart’s final symphony, Jupiter. A spectacular work that set the benchmark for others to try and attain.
One of the greatest milestones in the piano repertoire, Rachmaninov’s magnificent PianoConcerto Number 2 completes the program. Filled with Russian pathos and unimaginable beauty, for this virtuosic and breathtaking concerto the Woollahra Philharmonic Orchestra is thrilled to feature the charismatic and unmistakable talents of Phillip Shovk to perform this magnificent work with us.
