On a Theme of Paganini.
In his WASO debut Jaime Martín conducts an all-Russian concert bursting with colour, imagination and devilish flair. Rachmaninov’s show-stopping Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini is a concerto in all but name, its variations on Paganini’s Caprice No.24 full of scintillating and inventive detail. Behzod Abduraimov returns to Perth to dazzle you with this virtuosic showpiece. The enthralling symphonic journey of three fairground puppets comes to life in the second half with Stravinsky’s energetic and richly melodic Petrushka.
