Festival Farewell

The Festival Farewell is always something of a jamboree and 2016’s is no exception. Lots of duos, a couple of trios and a pair of large-scale ensembles involve all the artists remaining in Townsville – and still standing! There’s something for everybody: delightful Baroque, the ever-surprising Roderick Williams in his own arrangements of Mendelssohn and Verdi, popular opera, jazzy fun from Gershwin and Brubeck, and the Australian premiere of a hauntingly beautiful piece by William Lloyd-Webber, father of Andrew and Julian, found just last year, lurking in a drawer in the old family home. Not to be missed!

Evening Series - Op 127!

The second instalment in the Goldners’ ongoing cycle of Beethoven’s complete string quartets prompted Artistic Director Piers Lane to recognise its connection with another work he loves – Shostakovich’s dark and dramatic Blok Romances – the opus numbers of the two works are the same! “I thought it would be fun to hear the Op 127s of other composers too – and I now think this is my favourite program of the whole festival! Tonight five pianists who all love Schubert will take turns playing the set – very much in the spirit of the evenings held in Schubert’s own home, when he and friends would gather and perform for each other – the famous Schubertiads.”
