Beethoven & Brahms
Guest Conductor: Gyula Cseszkó
Soloist: Elyane Laussade, Piano
A graduate of the Juilliard school in New York City, pianist Elyane Laussade has delighted audiences on five continents with her imaginative and strongly individual playing. The New York Times has said she is “a pianist with a powerful, polished technique and many an original interpretive notion….with an impeccable sense of style and dazzling power.” Originally from the USA, she has now established herself as one of Australia’s finest performers. Elyane has been presented in concerts with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and has been featured by ABC Classic FM and 3MBS in studio recordings and live broadcasts. She has also enjoyed playing in every 3MBS marathon for the full run of its ten years.
As a soloist, Elyane has performed in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, China, Japan, South Africa, the USA and Europe. As a concerto soloist, she has played many concerti across the USA and in Australia. Her tour of Taiwan included recitals in Taipei, Tainan, Chaiyi, and at the National Concert Hall in Taichung. Elyane’s recital tours in France have included solo recitals, the Dvorak Piano Quintet with the Quatuor Joachim, and several WW1 commemorative recitals. Her discography includes Just for You, a solo CD, These Little Things with Sydney-based violinist Jemima Littlemore, and Humanation with Melbourne-based cellist Luke Severn.
