The Australian Youth Orchestra’s flagship ensemble will join forces with 2016 Sydney International Piano Competition winner Andrey Gugnin for an exclusive concert in Brisbane.

There is no mistaking the opening bars of Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No.1—it has been a favourite in concert halls around the globe for over a century. AYO with Gugnin will present a dazzlingly fresh performance of this beloved work, brimming with charming Russian folk melodies.

Conducted under the masterful baton of Courtney Lewis, the concert will open with one of Benjamin Britten’s most powerful works, Sinfonia da requiem, followed by Rachmaninov’s driving Symphonic Dances – a staple piece amongst traditional orchestral repertoire. In an unusual twist, the Orchestra will also feature a talented young saxophonist within its woodwind section.

An internationally renowned Russian pianist, Gugnin has performed as a recitalist, chamber music partner and soloist with orchestras in over 20 countries and has played in iconic venues such as the Louvre, Carnegie Hall, Moscow’s Tchaikovsky Concert Hall and Vienna’s Musikverein.
