Event description

Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra - MetSO Young Artists - Summer 2023
Power & Passion

Conducted by Izaak Wesson.
Featuring MetSO Young Artist 2023 -
Pianist - Alexander Chua
Performing Prokofiev Piano Concerto No. 3

The power of music to change the world, and the passions that it inspires, are why so many have tried to control the fires of the artistic souls that create it. In this concert experience the power and the passion of 2 great artists – Prokofiev and Tchaikovsky, who in their time were both applauded and denounced – but definitely left the world an infinitely richer place for their musical gifts to us all.

Prokofiev’s Piano Concerto No 3 will be masterfully brought to life by the brilliant Alexander Chua. Alexander is a longtime student of renowned concert pianist/educator, and Perth Music Icon Mark Coughlan. This musical masterpiece is truly something that should be experienced live to absorb its full impact – we are delighted to bring you MetSO Young Artist 2023 Alexander Chua’s powerful performance of this critically acclaimed classic.

Also on the program, Tchaikovsky’s 6th Symphony – the Passionate / Emotional (Pateticheskaya), with its achingly beautiful melodies and exotic waltz in 5/4 time!

MetSO welcomes back to our podium the dynamic Izaak Wesson, who has thoughtfully crafted this powerful and passionate musical experience for you, our dear audience.
