AmbreLIVE concert pianist

“…the jewel in the crown of Sydney Symphony’s 2007 Kaleidoscope program.” — Sydney Morning Herald

Legendary film music composer Lalo Schifrin’s Double Concerto for Piano, Jazz Trumpet and Orchestra, dedicated to internationally-acclaimed classical concert pianist Ambre.

Performed on 7 July 2007 at the Sydney Opera House in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.

In Schifrin’s words: “The piece was inspired by the virtuosity of Ambre (piano) and James Morrison (trumpet) and the combined talents of the Sydney Symphony, which I can definitely say is the best orchestra I’ve ever worked with.”

This video highlights the conclusion of the performance, including commentary by Ambre after experiencing the reactions from those who had the privilege of hearing and watching this magical landmark musical experience.

Please see Ambre’s website at for more information about this phenomenal pianist and person.

Ambre graciously shares her many talents with passion on the global stage, leveraging music as “the universal language” for maximum beneficial social impact.
