Gavrylyuk Plays Tchaikovsky

No longer available

Great Hall, Auckland Town Hall

Classical music

Tchaikovsky’s monumental concerto is a summit of the pianist’s repertoire, and the stupendous Ukrainian-born Australian pianist Alexander Gavrylyuk will give a blazing performance. 

Inspired by a visit to the Uffizi Gallery, Respighi perfectly caught the timeless serenity of Botticelli’s paintings in his charming suite for small orchestra.

A dramatic timpani flourish opens Haydn’s second-last symphony, but it gives way to a sunny, good-humoured piece. Giordano Bellincampi brings out the spirit of this most optimistic of composers.
