Auckland Libraries: Serious finds the rock 'n' roll

When the serious finds the rock 'n' roll

Thursday 29 October 12pm to 1pm Free

Brazilian born pianist Camila De Oliveira brings a dynamic and exciting programme filled with pathos, passion and intensity.

Beginning with Mendelssohn's Variations Serieuses opus 54, written as a tribute to Beethoven in 1841, Camila contrasts the tragic with the romantic Chopin-esque style of Alexander Scriabin with a selection from his Etudes opus 8. 

To conclude on a vibrant note she turns to NZ composer Jenny Mcleod with her Rock Sonata no.2 - this is when the serious finds the rock 'n' roll!

Camila is a masters student at the University of Auckland and supported by the Inspire Partnership Programme at the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra
