Event description
Two world-class artists meet at the whimsical Great Synagogue to share depths of musical romanticism of Rachmaninov and Bruch

About this event

Rachmaninov: Cello Sonata

Bruch: Kol Nidrei

Expect a small surprise to be performed by the Great Synagogue Choir with a guest Chazan.

Described as an exhilarating performer with faultless technique and fearless command of the piano, Australian based Russian pianist Konstantin Shamray enjoys performing on an international level with the world’s leading orchestras and concert presenters. He was the First Prize Winner and Audience Choice at the 2008 Sydney International Piano Competition.

Italian cellist, Umberto Clerici, made his debut as a soloist with SSO in 2017 with Strauss’ Don Quixote and in 2018 the Brahms double concerto. He has recorded several CDs with concertos, solo and chamber music and, in 2017, he realised two new solo recordings for ABC Classic. Umberto's multifaceted artistic and creative activity can be summed up in five dimensions: soloist, chamber musician, principal cellist, teacher and cultural innovator. Clerici was born in Turin, Italy and began studying cello at the age of 5. He is an acclaimed international soloist playing with many of the world’s major orchestras and in many of the world’s prestigious concert halls. As a conductor, Umberto recently made his debut with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra at the Sydney Opera House. Future highlights in Australia will include a series of concerts and national tours with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, Canberra Symphony as Artist in Residence and Brisbane’s Ensemble Q. Further afield Umberto will conduct the Izmir and Istanbul State Orchestras, Hong Kong Sinfonietta and Orchestra della Valle d’Aosta.
