Inaugural Paderewski Tour 2023 BRISBANE SYDNEY CANBERRA MELBOURNE 4-12 Nov 2023

Friends of Chopin Australia

A musical and cultural renaissance is currently flowering between Australia and Poland based on the compositions of Fryderyk Chopin

Join Orava Quartet and pianist Aleksandra Świgut for a performance of Chopin’s Piano Concerto No 1 not to be missed. Consummate artists in their own right, together they will treat us to a performance unlike any you’ve heard before. Rounding out the program with some Chopin works for solo piano, Wojciech Kilar’s Orawa, and Krysztof Penderecki’s 3rd String Quartet.

I have always felt the performance of the quartet version of the concerto is a remarkable complement to that with the full orchestra. It gives a suitable chamber music feel to the entire work which reveals an intimacy rarely encountered.
