Review: Sydney Morning Herald, Sydney Symphony Orchestra/ Ashkenazy/ Sydney Opera House

Written by Hannah King, Wednesday 19th October 2016

Beethoven Heroic
Sydney Symphony, Sydney Opera House, October 12
★★★★

The next generation of performers were on prominent display this week, first in Jayson Gillham’s lyrically restrained performance of Beethoven’s Fourth Piano Concerto with conductor, Vladimir Ashkenazy, and the SSO and then with the uncannily accomplished Beilman and Tyson violin and piano duo from Musica Viva.

Gillham’s playing is smooth, clear and polished and in the first movement he focused on the melodic line and legato playing to produce a dreamy, though occasionally undynamic effect.

In the great slow movement, which so memorably balances darkness and eloquence, Gillham was classically controlled, while the ... Read more

Review: ArtsHub Australia Sydney Symphony Orchestra, Sydney Opera House

Written by Hannah King, Wednesday 19th October 2016

The Concert Hall was almost full for this wonderful performance of sheer musicality by the Sydney Symphony Orchestra with conductor Vladimir Ashkenazy and pianist Jayson Gillham.

Ashkenazy is well known and much loved by the local audience thanks to his tenure as Principal Conductor of the SSO from 2009 to 2013.  There is also a depth of understanding between him and the majority of the orchestra who were in residence during that period.  They know the nuances of his eclectic conducting and respond well to his gestural style.

The program began with Beethoven’s delightful Piano Concerto No. 4, an elegant, ... Read more

Review: Limelight Magazine - Sydney Symphony Orchestra/ Vladimir Ashkenazy/ Sydney Opera House

Written by Hannah King, Thursday 13th October 2016

Gillham proved a poet…

 

Vladimir Ashkenazy’s Beethoven celebration with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra continues on apace after a six-month break, the final three instalments featuring a pair of fine piano soloists, and culminating in the mighty Ninth in a couple of weeks’ time. The drawcards in this “Beethoven Heroic” concert were, of course, the ever-remarkable Eroica Symphony, but also a welcome appearance in the Fourth Piano Concerto by young Australian pianist Jayson Gillham, a much-talked about rising star whose performance of the work won him the Montreal International Music Competition a couple of years ago.

There was ... Read more

★★★★½ Queensland’s star pianist takes London by storm ahead of Aussie tour.
Australia House, London
June 7, 2016

A summer afternoon in London and I am going to a piano recital in Australia House where there’s plenty of imperial gilding to gawp at, but on this evening it is the wonder of the music which awes me. The event was to launch the release by ABC Classics of the debut recital album by Jayson Gillham. In 2014, at just 27, this young Australian artist won the Montreal International Music Competition and has since given concerto performances with many of the world’s ... Read more

Recital at Royal Concert Hall, Nottingham

​Pianist Jayson Gillham, Royal Concert Hall, Nottingham:

review by NottmPostEG | Posted: March 06, 2016

By William Ruff

Lots of smiles and warm applause greeted the end of Sunday morning’s recital by young Australian pianist Jayson Gillham. And it wasn’t simply a case of the audience liking his dazzling performance of a wide-ranging and demanding programme. They also liked him.

His technique may have been formidable, but his easy, friendly manner – together with his calm, unshowy keyboard style – immediately endeared him to his listeners.

Gillham began his programme with Handel’s Harmonious Blacksmith Suite, the famous final movement displaying much crisp articulation as ... Read more

Review of Keyboard Trust tour of Italy closing concert

Concerti,the F.O.R.M. closes on a high note.

Review from Pesaro Newspaper 6th May by Ivana Baldassarri.
Trans by Christopher Axworthy

The beautiful thing about culture is its capacity to link and
harmonise thought, emotion, projects and happenings even at a distance
of time; it is the golden thread, the inscrutable link that brings
together genius and simple man in the difficult tasting of life. The
music, one knows, is one of those magic carpets that allows one to
manage, with dignity, dreams and wishes and it is for this that we
Pesaresi are grateful to the Concert Society and all its members ... Read more
