Mozart                Adagio and Fugue
Villa-Lobos       Aria from Bachianas Brasileiras No. 5 [arr. John Krance]
Bach                    Ricercar à 6
Piazzolla           Three Pieces for Piano and Strings
Golijov               Last Round
Mozart               Piano Concerto No. 14 in E flat major, K449

Dancing on the edge of two very different traditions, where better than the joyfully addictive work of Piazzolla to explore this meeting of sounds? The tango rhythms of his Three Pieces for Piano and Strings – half-dance, half-fugue – are complemented by Villa-Lobos’ imagining of a Brazilian Bach, taking drama and structure and creating one passionate yet ordered flow of cultures.

With numerous awards for her spontaneous and expressive improvisations, who better than Gabriela-Montero-(Credit-Shelley-Mosman)Venezuelan pianist Gabriela Montero to join us for Mozart’s Piano Concerto in E flat major?

Her extended sparkling cadenzas ring out with exuberance and a sense of freedom, making for an invigorating experience. After performing she very often asks the audience to call out pieces and ideas for her to improvise on – come prepared with your best challenge…
