All hands on deck for Russian Rhapsodies

11 April 2016

12pm, Wednesday 11 May I The Concourse Concert Hall, Chatswood

ARIA Award-winning pianist Tamara-Anna Cislowska and internationally acclaimed composer/pianist Elena Kats-Chernin star in Russian Rhapsodies: Four Hands and a Flute, the second concert of the popular lunchtime concert series, Live at Lunch.

With their four hands at the one piano, the duo will perform an incredible repertoire of Kats-Chernin’s music, as well as the stunningly beautiful works of Rachmaninov, Ravel, Liszt, and Tchaikovsky.

A child prodigy, Tamara-Anna Cislowska gave her first public performance at the age of two and began recording material at three years of age. At age 14 she became the youngest pianist to receive the prestigious ABC Symphony Australia Young Performers Award and most recently received the ARIA for ‘Best Classical Album’ in 2015.

Australian composer Elena Kats-Chernin has created works for the Vienna Boys Choir, Australian Chamber Orchestra and the state symphony orchestras of Australia. One of the most cosmopolitan composers working today, Elena’s dramatically vivid music communicates light-heartedness and heavy melancholy, combining rhythmic figures with elements of cabaret, tango and ragtime.
