Rising piano star Yulianna Avdeeva will make her debut on Sydney Opera House Concert Hall stage performing Chopin’s Piano Concerto No. 1 with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, following her successful Australian debut recital at the City Recital Hall in 2018,
Highly regarded for her interpretation of Chopin’s works, Avdeeva has become an in-demand pianist on the international circuit since winning first prize in the Chopin Competition in 2010. A leading musician of her generation, the young artist has toured with the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin and the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields. Avdeeva’s Australian debut recital in 2018 was met with such enthusiasm that the Sydney Symphony Orchestra immediately invited her to return to perform in its 2019 season.
Fellow Russian Andrey Boreyko will also join Avdeeva, leading the Sydney Symphony Orchestra in a program featuring Krysztof Meyer’s Hommage à Johannes Brahms and an orchestration by Arnold Schoenberg of Brahms’ Piano Quartet in G minor.
Pre-Concert Talk by David Garrett in the Northern Foyer, 45 minutes before each performance.
