Classical Music

From Oct 31
Amanda Cole, Mezzo Soprano and Janet Brewer, Piano and Harpsichord with guest, Andrew Paszkowski, Viola. A rapturous and dynamic evening of music from the 12th century to the 20th. Amanda Cole (mezzo-soprano) and Janet Brewer (piano & harpsichord) take you on a journey through the wonders of German song, from the plainsong of Hildegard von Bingen to the seductive allure of Kurt Weill. This enchanting program will explore the music of many of our favourite composers, as well as the Lieder of some of those less well known, such as Clara Schumann, Albert, Prince Consort (Queen Victoria’s husband), and Henry Handel Richardson–famed Australian author of The Getting of Wisdom. Andrew Paszkowski (viola) joins the duo for Brahms’s captivating masterwork, Op.91, two songs for piano, viola and contralto. Cole is known for her innovative programming and for including a surprise element to her song recitals. Be prepared for an unorthodox experience of classical music.
