Freddy plays piano and conducts at the same time. His previous appearance with the NZSO provoked standing ovations. This concert showcases piano favourites, with beautiful and powerful music that represents the history of the piano over the last 300 years.
The Pianomania programme is full of popular classics:
Handel Concerto for Keyboard, op. 4. No. 1 in G minor
Mozart Piano Concerto No. 21, in C major (2nd mvt)
Chopin Andante spianato et Grande polonaise brillante
Mendelssohn Piano Concerto No. 1 in G minor (3rd mvt)
Rachmaninov Piano Concerto No. 2 in C minor (2nd mvt)
Gershwin Rhapsody in Blue
Thanks to the NZSO we had two double passes to give away to library members!
The winners are Li who picked Polonaise in A flat, Op. 53, "Heroic" as their favourite piece of piano music, and Ruth who picked Mozart Piano concerto no. 20 in D minor.
Competition Closed: this competition ran from 6 September to 13 September.
