Sydney Symphony Orchestra presents
WHO NEEDS A CONDUCTOR ANYWAY?

What happens if there’s no conductor? Isn’t a solo pianist enough? Why can’t everyone just play how they like? Celebrated Australian pianist Simon Tedeschi has no idea, but with the musicians of the Sydney Symphony Orchestra and some of the most famous concertos in the repertoire, he’ll put these and other questions to the test.

The repertoire includes highlights from:
TCHAIKOVSKY Piano Concerto No.1
BEETHOVEN Piano Concerto No.5 (Emperor)
GRIEG Piano Concerto
RACHMANINOFF Piano Concerto No.2
MOZART Piano Concerto No.21 in C, K467
GERSHWIN Rhapsody in Blue

Teachers will receive digital resources to support learning around this concert.
