Elyane Laussade

PIANO RECITAL

PART OF WOOD, METAL AND VIBRATING AIR – PIANO RECITAL SERIES

Described by the New York Times as ‘a pianist with dazzling power and an impeccable sense of style’, US-born Juilliard graduate Elyane Laussade is now firmly established as one of Australia’s finest pianists. This attractive program of romantic favourites such as Chopin’s Scherzo in Bb minor, Liszt’s Hungarian Rhapsody No.2 and Rachmaninov’s Elegie has as its centrepiece Schubert’s final piano sonata. Completed two months before his death, unpublished for ten years and neglected for over a hundred, it is an expansive and deeply rewarding piece that, like so much of the composer’s late work, seems to take us with him on an existential journey through hardship, joy, despair, and moments of epiphany.

‘A pianist with a powerful, polished technique and many an original interpretive notion.’
New York Times
