Two world-class artists will grace the stage of The Great Synagogue for the opening of the Live at the Great 2022 concert series. The four-concert series is in partnership with The Great Synagogue Foundation, with the first concert o n tomorrow 16 February to officially launch the Foundation.

For their first duo collaboration, Australia’s leading artists, star cellist/conductor Umberto Clerici and concert pianist Konstantin Shamray (winner of the Sydney International Piano Competition) will present a passionate programme of Bruch’s Kol Nidrei and Rachmaninov’s cello sonata. 

In this intimate and ‘unorthodox’ concert, audiences will also get to experience the Kol Nidrei in its original form sung by The Great Synagogue Choir and Rabbi Kaplan, before the two artists perform Bruch’s poetic account of the piece. The artists will then reveal their vivid virtuosity with the Rachmaninov cello sonata, one of the most dazzling and romantic works for piano and cello.

As with all Live at Yours concerts, you can expect the synagogue to be flooded in beautiful mood lighting and the concert to be hosted by the charismatic conductor/pianist, Vladimir Fanshil.

This will be the first of four concerts that will be presented at the heritage-listed venue in its glorious acoustics and architecture. This shall be a historic night and one to remember.
