Fremantle Symphony Orchestra wrap up the year with an exciting program

The Fremantle Symphony Orchestra’s final concert of 2019 will feature dramatic and engaging repertoire.

In a program curated and conducted by the Orchestra’s Artistic Director, David Pye, and titled Tempest, the Orchestra will perform Rachmaninov’s Piano Concerto No. 3, two of Britten’s Four Sea Interludes from Peter Grimes, Smetana’s The Moldau from Ma Vlast and the world premiere of Gage Roads by West Australian composer, Mark Holdsworth.

Pianist, Xiao Song Liu will join the orchestra for the performance of Rachmaninov’s Piano Concerto. On playing with the Orchestra, Xiao Song said “This is a wonderful opportunity to play one of the greatest piano works in the repertoire, and to perform it with a local orchestra makes it all the more special.”

FSO President, Steven Harmer said keeping things local was central to the community orchestra’s ethos.

“As a local orchestra, supporting our local talent is critical to the FSO. Our previous concert featured local instrumentalists and a work by a local composer, and we are thrilled to be able to work with Xiao Song and Mark for Tempest.

“Fortunately, WA has such a diverse breadth of talent, that we are looking forward to our next
series of concerts.”
