It’s time for a party as PSO celebrates 30 years of music making. The program gives a nod to history while also looking forward to the future.

The joy and sophistication of Strauss’s Kaiser Walzer opens the evening. Originally written as a toast to the German Emperor from his Austrian counterpart, the work’s warmth and charm are as apparent as ever.

Two new works will be premiered – by the winners of the Western Sydney University composition prize and the PSO Young Composer Award – before the first half concludes with the festive fireworks of Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture.

PSO presented Rachmaninov’s Piano Concerto No. 2 at its very first concert in 1988. Internationally renowned Australian pianist Michael Kieran Harvey joins the orchestra in 2018 to perform this monumental and much-loved work. It is preceded by the pianist’s own dazzling solo composition, Homage to Liszt.

Duration Approximately 120 min with a 20 min interval.
