Review: Simon Tedeschi plays ‘Pictures at an Exhibition’, Sydney & Adelaide

Two exciting reviews of Simon Tedeschi‘s live performances of the piano masterpiece, Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition:

SYDNEY at City Recital Hall, Angel Place:

pure brilliance… masterful … This was a powerhouse performance with an intense corporeality… Tedeschi took the piano to the edge of ugliness, wallowing deliberately at times, but always with a sense of the totality of the work. An insightful and exhilarating performance from a great artist.”

Sydney Morning Herald, October 2015 (full review here)

ADELAIDE at Elder Hall:

“The audience leapt to its feet as the last massive unison of Simon Tedeschi’s superb performance of Pictures at an Exhibition died away, and they kept clapping until he’d returned to the stage three times more… A commanding and authoritative performance by one of Australia’s finest pianists
