About

Washington Performing Arts presents
Melbourne Symphony
Sir Andrew Davis, conductor
Garrick Ohlsson, piano


What makes the Melbourne Symphony so special? As Sir Andrew Davis, their Chief Conductor, told the Guardian: “They perform with great virtuosity, but what really sets them apart is their love of what they do. Not all orchestras manage this. There’s a terrific work ethic there, one of the reasons I’m so crazy about them.” The program features repertoire from both the Northern and Southern hemispheres, including the late, eminent Australian composer Peter Sculthorpe’s Earth Cry, a call for humanity to attune itself to the land, inspired by Aboriginal poetry.

“Garrick Ohlsson is a pianist who combines finely toned muscle with mollifying sensitivity.” (Gramophone)

PROGRAM
Sculthorpe
Earth Cry
Beethoven: Piano Concerto No. 4 in G major, Op. 58
