The Langham Invites You To A Special Afternoon Tea With Cellist Thomas Rann And Pianist Konstantin Shamray

Class and classical music combine at    The Salon Series by The Langham.

The Salon Series by The Langham and its extraordinary lineup continue in June with multi-award-winning and famed pianist Konstantin Shamray taking to the stage with acclaimed cellist Thomas Rann to perform a number of classical music favourites as well as compositions from the Russian Romance oeuvre.

Highlights of the Afternoon Tea recital include Beethoven’s Sonata Op.5 no.2 in G minor, Chopin’s Sonata in g minor Op.65 and Adagio from Cinderella Op.97 bis by Prokofiev/Rostropovich. It will be an afternoon delight you will not want to skip out on.

Now living in Adelaide, Russian-born Konstantin Shamray has continually wowed audiences and judges alike since sweeping up at the 2008 Sydney International Piano Competition. His virtuosity on the keys is exceptional and his mastery has seen him perform all around the world with the world’s most prestigious orchestras and musicians.

He will be joined by Thomas Rann, who in his own right has established himself as one of our great cellists with awards including the Hattori Foundation Award and the E.V.Llewellyn Prize. Enabling his cello to sing and accompany Shamray, the afternoon will sound divine as strings bring to life and send forth the wondrous musical scores. 

The Langham and its Ballroom is one of Sydney’s most exclusive addresses and to date has hosted pianists, vocalists and other musicians of the highest calibre for its series of performances. Including opera and jazz, guests have been serenaded while savouring delicious menus.

On Sunday 27 June, guests will be received with a glass of sparkling before sitting down to The Langham’s Signature Afternoon Tea. Enjoy savoury bites like prawn toast, beef burgundy pies and Tasmanian smoked salmon finger sandwiches. Then, treat yourself to a selection of homemade pastries and tea cakes like the burnt orange, honey and pistachio pavlova for an explosion of the senses. 

Do not pass on this opportunity to see famed pianist Konstantin Shamray perform alongside cellist Thomas Rann.

The two-hour afternoon tea begins at 1pm with a brief interval midway through. Save your seat.
