Taiwanese-Australian violinist Ray Chen returns to his hometown of Brisbane.
Ray’s energy and charisma need no introduction, and in this concert, he presents one of the greatest of all works for violin and orchestra – Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto. His musical partner on the podium is Giancarlo Guerrero, who wowed audiences in 2018 with his rendition of Shostakovich’s 10th Symphony.
Shostakovich symphonies sometimes have a reputation for being intimidating, but with Guerrero providing expert explanations from stage, you will be taken on a journey into the heart of a composer who used music to express his struggles with the government of his native land.
Recommended audience age is 8+
