Hi again, I can’t believe it’s already October!
I’ve got some really interesting concerts coming up in the next couple of months.
This coming Thursday 10th October I will be performing a lunchtime concert with pianist Claire Howard Race from 12.15-1.15 pm in the foyer of the National Library of Australia (Parkes Pl, Parkes ACT). This concert features a charming selection of piano duets by Mozart, Debussy and Rachmaninov. Entry is by gold coin donation as part of the Canberra Musical Offering.
Next month, two Thursday evening Trio Soirées should have you dining in musical style:
The first on Thursday 7th November is the second concert of our newly formed trio featuring violinist Estelita Rae and cellist Jack Hobbs. We will perform some Brahms, Faure and Mendelssohn from 7-8 pm in the foyer of the National Library of Australia (Parkes Pl, Parkes ACT). Entry is by gold coin donation, again as part of the Canberra Musical Offering.
The second on Thursday 21st November features a slightly different combination - flautist Rachel Howie will join Jack Hobbs and I to perform a beautiful program of Martinu, Janáček, Poulenc and Weber. This concert will be at the Wesley Music Centre (National Circuit, Forrest ACT) from 7-8 pm. Entry is by donation as my final tribute to the Canberra Musical Offering.
My final concert of the year will be on Saturday 8th December as I reunite on the concert stage with Sydney baritone Alexander Knight to perform a fiery Russian program (lots of Rachmaninov!) from 3-5 pm at the Wesley Music Centre (National Circuit, Forrest ACT). Entry is by a modest fee and refreshments will be provided.
If you would like any further information please feel free to Contact Me. The 2014 concert season is already in the planning stages and I look forward to visiting some of you in Melbourne soon! Remember to sign up to my newsletter for a friendly reminder about my upcoming concerts.
Finally, I would just like to leave you with some photos from concerts taken by photographer Peter Hislop.
I hope you enjoy the rest of Spring,
