Russian Romantics In Recital

Where:  Christ Church, Lavender Bay May 8/ Pitt Street Uniting Church, Sydney May 15/ Hunter Baillie Church, Annandale May 17.


Join pianist Chris Cartner when he performs this collection of dramatic and passionate masterpieces which are legacies to the era of the great Russian Romantics.

Russia’s frozen landscapes ignited warmth in the heart of Tchaikovsky, inspiring hugely emotional music which paved the way for the Romantic revolution in his homeland.  Rachmaninoff’s popular solo piano works are masterpieces which place melody and virtuosity side by side, whilst Scriabin’s intensely passionate offerings are often seen as hidden gems.  Prokofiev’s imaginative score for Romeo and Juliet is bold, brilliant, heartfelt and shocking. 

Resonance Concerts and Events prides itself on presenting outstanding, one-hour, early evening concerts which are informal and social.
