Ku-ring-gai Philharmonic Orchestra | La Danza
15 November 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm AEDT$12 – $50
Join the Ku-ring-gai Philharmonic Orchestra for a program of fantastic dance themed works from across the world. Argentine composer Alberto Ginastera’s Estancia Suite ripples with South American syncopation. Ravel’s Bolero is eternally popular for its obsessive beat and seductive melody. Somewhat less outrageous, yet totally charming, are Resphigi’s Ancient Airs and Dances. One of his most popular creations, this suite presents a gently modern take on a selection of beautiful tunes from the Italian Renaissance and Baroque.
When Prokofiev decided to rework his Cello Concerto, he sought the advice of legendary soloist Mstislav Rostropovich. The result was the sublime and intensely difficult Sinfonia Concertante, with its soaring cello melodies across driving orchestral chords. For this thrilling inclusion in our program, we welcome back our young soloist Sebastien Hibbard, winner of the 2019 NSW Secondary Schools Concerto Competition.
