The 2020 season for the KPO begins with an epic concert of famous ‘5ths’: Beethoven’s 5th piano concerto and Shostakovich’s 5th Symphony.

Known as ‘The Emperor’, Beethoven’s last and largest piano concerto has grandeur in its striking first movement, beauty and serenity in the Adagio and virtuosity in the glorious rondo finale.

We welcome Leanne Jin, one of Australia’s leading young soloists to perform the ‘Emperor’ concerto.  Leanne was the winner of the Barbara Robinson Award in the 2017 KPO Concerto Competition and she has since won the 2019 Lev Vlassenko Competition and the 2019 Sydney Eisteddfod Kawai Piano Scholarship.

A new work by composer Gerard Brophy is being commissioned by the orchestra and we look forward to performing it for you.

The fifth symphony by Dmitri Shostakovich is arguably his most famous.  Written after his opera Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk was denounced by Stalin, this symphony contains elements that surely kept the heroically minded Soviet politicians happy,  but what was truly concealed in his Fifth Symphony has been a topic of discussion ever since. Only through the music may we glean his innermost thoughts and feelings. There are traces of inner melancholy, sarcasm, and cryptic irony and Shostakovich possibly had the final word with the apparently triumphant ending to the finale.

We look forward to welcoming you to this wonderful programme at The Concourse in Chatswood.
