Llewellyn Two: Longing and Desire

Llewellyn Two: Longing and Desire

Simon Hewett – Conductor
Sine Winther – Piano
Canberra Symphony Orchestra

Richard Meale
Viridian

Sergei Rachmaninov
Piano Concerto No. 2

Sergei Prokofiev
Selections from Romeo and Juliet


Based on Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, Prokofiev’s ballet score of the same name is an exhilarating and ultimately devastating depiction of such perilous desire. It is a work of mighty opposites: joy and grief, fate and chance, life and death.

Though not marred by such ‘violent ends’, Richard Meale’s Viridian is equally evocative.

Rachmaninov’s second piano concerto dances between light and shade, full of lyrical melodies and exhilarating crescendos.
