John Williams The Imperial March from Star Wars
Brahms Piano Concerto No. 2
Wagner Parsifal Suite
Richard Farnes conductor
Pavel Kolesnikov piano
Symphony Orchestra of India
In the second of its two concerts, the Symphony Orchestra of India will be conducted by the eminent Wagner conductor Richard Farnes who will perform in the second half a specially arranged suite constructed by Andrew Gourlay featuring the profound and emotive music from Wagner’s last, great opera, Parsifal.
The first half of the concert will begin with John Williams’ grand Imperial March from Star Wars and will be followed by Pavel Kolesnikov’s interpretation of Brahms’ virtuosic Second Piano Concerto, one of the most challenging works in the piano repertoire.
‘Conductor Richard Farnes focused on accuracy and detail in the orchestra and paced [the opera] with a sure sense of direction’ Financial Times
