Mary Finsterer Lumen prime aurore
Rachmaninov Piano Concerto No 3 in D minor, Op 30
Tchaikovsky Symphony No 6 in B minor, Op 74, ‘Pathétique’

Conducted by Eivind Aadland, featuring Yeol Eum Son on piano.

Rachmaninov’s Third Piano Concerto is the Mount Everest of the piano concerto repertoire, and scaling its formidable peak is Yeol Eum Son, the international superstar who wowed Tasmanian audiences with her performance of Chopin’s Second Piano Concerto in 2022.

Rachmaninov’s epic concerto is paired with two beautifully contrasting works. Mary Finsterer’s Lumen prime aurore (Light at First Dawn) gives us a mediative beginning, taking its inspiration from the poetry of medieval sage, mystic and composer St Hildegard von Bingen.

Finishing in true style is Symphony No 6, ‘Pathétique’, by Tchaikovsky. Drawing upon all the colours of the orchestra and tapping into deep wells of emotion, Tchaikovsky’s Sixth is a marvel, speaking to us powerfully and directly, and was ranked among the nation’s top 10 favourite symphonies in a poll conducted by ABC Classic.
