Mighty Rachmaninov

Masterful. Compelling. Powerful.

Mighty Rachmaninov

#Anyone who has been to a Queensland Symphony Orchestra concert knows the enthusiasm and energy that radiates from our Section Principal Double Bass, Phoebe Russell.

In this concert we’re inviting her to centre stage to perform the world premiere of a concerto for double bass and orchestra written especially for her by Queensland composer Paul Dean. 

Then to end our Maestro series on a high, we’re finishing with one of the grandest masterpieces of Russian music – Rachmaninov’s Second Symphony. This piece is big in every sense of the word, full of rich emotion and melody. Conducted by Principal Conductor Johannes Fritzsch, this will be an unforgettable end-of-year concert. We are Powered by Music and this concert will show you exactly what we mean.
